Woman accused of falsely reporting stolen vehicle

A town woman was arrested on April 9 for falsely reporting that her vehicle had been stolen, according to Cheektowaga police.

Deadra Berg, 39, was arrested by Detective Mark Jedd, Cheektowaga stolen vehicle coordinator.

Jedd said Berg reported her vehicle stolen on Feb. 9, 2014. After a joint investigation with Special Agent Fran Hannigan of the National Insurance Crime Bureau, Jedd said it was discovered that Berg’s vehicle had been crushed at a local junkyard six months prior to her report.

She appeared before a judge and was released on an appearance ticket.
