A Pahrump man was taken into custody on a charge of alleged insurance fraud according to the Nye County Sheriff’s Office.

The man was identified as Allah Lindsay, 46, according to a sheriff’s office news release, issued by Lt. Adam Tippetts, who said Nye County Sheriff’s Office deputies were contacted by an investigator from Progressive Insurance Company.

“The investigator contacted an anonymous source who provided information regarding a stolen vehicle claim which had been paid by the insurance company,” Tippetts said. “Deputies spoke to the anonymous source and learned that the man identified as Allah Lindsay, 46, of Pahrump, reported a BMW motorcycle stolen, but he in fact was in possession of the motorcycle.”
