Police officer among those arrested in the $2 Million fraud ring involving staged car crashes

BRAMPTON – Four men, including two Indo-Canadians and a police officer, are charged in an alleged $2 million fraud ring involving staged car crashes. Arrest warrant has been issued for another South Asians suspect who is on the lam.

Krishan Arora, 38, Balraj Thind, 41 and Wayne Isaacs, 46, are facing several charges, including conspiracy to commit fraud. Police allege Issacs was the ringleader. Investigators are still looking for Azhar Hussain, 38.

Const. Carlton Watson, 49, was charged in April and is currently suspended with pay.

Peel police began investigating three Brampton rehabilitation clinics back in April after receiving tips they were allegedly filing fraudulent insurance claims on behalf of people who, authorities claim, staged vehicle collisions.

Insurance companies paid out an estimated $2 million in fraudulent claims, police said Friday, for things such as homecare, assistive devices, vehicle payouts and benefits.

Three men were charged Tuesday after officers executed search warrants at two Brampton homes. Now police are looking for one outstanding suspect.
