YORK, Neb. (AP) — A 51-year-old York woman has been convicted of attempted insurance fraud.
Susan Schulz pleaded no contest on Tuesday. Schulz faces up to five years in prison when she's sentenced on March 21.
say Schulz called the York County Sheriff's Department in September to
report that her house had been broken into while she was gone. She said
painkillers, a DVD player, a laptop computer, $1,200 in cash, jewelry,
an Xbox and a camera had been taken.
The investigator became
suspicious because the house wasn't ransacked. Prosecutors say that when
the investigator contacted Schulz's insurance company, a company
representative said Schulz had called five days earlier to report that
she was missing $2,500 in cash, an Xbox and a laptop computer.
