LAPD Officer arrested for Workers Compensation Fraud NR10473jr

Los Angeles:  Officer Robert Yanez, an 11-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), was arrested today pursuant to an arrest warrant listing six counts of workers’ compensation fraud.  

Officer Yanez surrendered this morning to LAPD investigators from the Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit.  The investigation stemmed from a claim filed by Officer Yanez in late 2008.  Investigators working in partnership with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Healthcare Fraud Division established probable cause to believe that Officer Yanez had received benefits to which he was not entitled.

Officer Yanez was booked at the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail and is held in lieu of $30,000.00 bail.  Today’s arrest was made at Parker Center and occurred without incident.  Officer Yanez is 38 years old and resides in northern Riverside County.  Officer Yanez is assigned to home without pay pending the outcome of both the criminal and administrative investigations.

The Workers Compensation Fraud Unit was expanded in late 2008 to investigate workers’ compensation fraud and other allegations involving abuse of benefits by employees.  The goal of the Department is to aggressively investigate fraud and abuse of benefits within the workers’ compensation system.  

Anyone with information related to this case, or any other case, is encouraged to call the Los Angeles Police Department, Special Operations Division, at 213-473-5672.  After-hours and on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “CRIMES” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
