Entry Description

Lake County-Indiana State Police Detective Joe White with the Organized Crime and Corruption Section arrested Marlon Leon Underwood, 39 of 8313 Double Tree Drive South, Crown Point on 11 felonies this afternoon, Wednesday, April 17th, 2013. Underwood was arrested in Michigan City without incident.

The arrest stems from an investigation that began in July 2012 from a complaint by the Indiana Department of Insurance on possible insurance fraud.

During the course of the investigation multiple financial crimes, identity deception, and crimes against the elderly were discovered. Underwood was a broker at the American Freedom Financial Insurance office which was located in Highland and later operated out of Underwood’s home. Underwood had his insurance broker’s license suspended in 2010. During Underwood’s time selling insurance he sold primarily to the elderly from the Gary area.

A warrant was issued by the Lake County Prosecutor for Underwood on:
-One count of Corrupt Business Influence (Racketeering)-Class C Felony
-Five counts of Forgery-Class D Felony
-Five Counts of Identity Deception-Class D Felony

Underwood was taken and incarcerated at the Lake County Jail and is being held without bond.

It is believed that there may be more victims of Underwood that have not come forward. If anyone believes they may have been a victim please contact Detective Joe White at the Lowell State Police Post at 219-696-6242.
