North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Christopher Shawn Brice, 27, of Marietta, Ga. Brice was charged with two counts of felony conspiracy.
Special Agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division accuse Brice of conspiring with Andrew Bryant Belk to embezzle funds from IAT Insurance Group. Belk was arrested earlier.
The offense occurred between Feb. 2, 2016, and March 14, 2016.
Special Agents and Wake County deputies arrested Brice on Feb. 5. He was given a $10,000 secured bond.
“This kind of white-collar crime is unacceptable,” Commissioner Causey said. “That’s why I’ve doubled the number of Special Agents to investigate white collar crimes. Cracking down on this type of crime will put more money in the pockets of businesses and consumers.”
