North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey today announced the arrest of Taniyha Daniels, 20, of 2324 Saddleback Drive, Winterville. Daniels is charged with obtaining property by false pretense, a felony.
According to the arrest warrant, Daniels accepted money to post a bond when she was not a licensed bail bond agent in North Carolina.
The offense occurred between Nov. 14-15, 2019.
Special Agents with the Department of Insurance’s Criminal Investigations Division, along with Greenville police, arrested Daniels on Oct. 19. She was given a $5,000 secured bond.
Since taking office, Commissioner Causey has cracked down on this white-collar crime by boosting the NCDOI Criminal Investigations Division.
Over the past two years, CID Special Agents recovered $7.5 million in damages – money that was returned to consumers and insurance companies. The restitution also helps preserve insurance rates.
