FAYETTE — Investigators arrested a Fayette woman Wednesday on an indictment for allegedly attempting to defraud GEICO Insurance of more than $3,200.

Attorney General Jim Hood announced Thursday the arrest of Kyomi M. Fulton, 30, on one count of insurance fraud.

Fulton allegedly reported to GEICO that a 2000 Grand Marquis had been stolen and subsequently submitted a false car repair report claiming to have installed a new engine in the vehicle before it was stolen.

The reportedly false car repair order totaled $3,238.89 in repairs.

A Copiah County grand jury handed down the indictment, which stated that no such repairs had taken place.

Fulton was booked Wednesday into the Copiah County Sheriff’s Office.

The Attorney General’s Office reported that Fulton faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines if convicted.
