Rayne man arrested

RAYNE - On Tuesday, the Louisiana State Police Region 2 Insurance Fraud Unit arrested a Rayne man for insurance fraud and theft charges.

On October 13, 2009, 32-year-old Demoine Declouette of Rayne, LA, filed a claim with his insurance company after his vehicle, a 2008 Dodge Ram, caught fire. Declouette’s claim, which included the damage to his vehicle, was also for damage to custom after-market products he had installed on the vehicle.

Earlier this year, the Department of Insurance forwarded the case to the State Police Insurance Fraud Unit for investigation. Troopers were able to obtain evidence that indicated Declouette had altered documents sent to the insurance company for reimbursement. In all, troopers discovered Declouette fraudulently obtained over $7,800.00.

Based on the evidence troopers obtained, they were able to secure a warrant for Declouette’s arrest for one count of automobile insurance fraud and one count of felony theft over $500.00. Declouette turned himself in to troopers today at the Acadia Parish Correctional Center. Declouette’s bond was set at $5,000.00.
