More arrests in insurance scam

September 16, 2005

Albany -- Three more arrests Friday in an insurance fraud case, including another city of Albany employee.

Michael Williams, who works for the city's Solid Waste Division, is charged with one count of insurance fraud. Angie Smith and her sister Regina Heard are charged with two counts.

Nine people were arrested Thursday, accused of filing bogus claims with AFLAC. So far five city employees have been arrested.

Investigators say the ringleaders of the scam were Albany sanitation worker Tim Hunt and his unemployed wife, Kysheila.

Assistant city manager Kevin Hogencamp said no decision has been made on any action by the city against those employees arrested. All 12 suspects are still in jail.
