WEST PALM BEACH, Fla - A mother and son have been arrested and charged with auto insurance fraud.
Investigators from the West Palm Beach Division of Insurance Fraud investigated a crash that took place on November 17, 2009 at 10:10 pm in Palm Springs.
Two co-defendants in the case told investigators that they were recruited by Marianela Cedeno to stage a crash.
Investigators say the crash was faked for the purpose of filing a fraudulent insurance claim.
Marianela's son Yonuel Cedeno was also arrested in connection with the alleged fraud.
The plan, according to investigators, called for the people in both cars to seek medical treatment at NY Medical.
Both Marianela and Yonuel Cedeno were in the same car when the accident occurred in 2009 according to the arrest report.
Marianela and Yonuel were both booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on insurance fraud charges.
