Maybe it was the inflated claim of $1,500 for a stolen iPad that first caught the attention of insurance investigators. Or the report that there had been more than $116,000 in jewelry in a Louis Vuitton purse left on the backseat of the Lexus parked in Chester that was later reported stolen.
But what finally sealed the case against Latrell Taylor of Morton, officials say, was her claim that the jewelry came from a store that had yet to open as a gift from her then-boyfriend who was in jail when the purchase was allegedly made.
Taylor is charged with making a false insurance claim, attempted theft, attempting to receive stolen property, forgery, and other related crimes. She was arraigned and released on $100,000 unsecured bail, the Delaware County District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.
