A dumbass

Found this on the CJOB Website.

 

“A man who burned his 2002 Ford Mustang in March 2003 has been convicted of Arson and Public Mischief, fined $1,200 and ordered to pay Manitoba Public Insurance $26,129.

Danny Dimko Atanasovic, now 22, admitted to the offences when he appeared in Provincial Judges Court last week.

Evidence showed Atanasovic was having trouble meeting the lease payments so he decided to burn the vehicle and claim it was stolen. He drove the vehicle to a remote location near Marquette and after setting it on fire, made a theft report to the local RCMP office and a claim for benefits to MPI..

The charges were laid after a lengthy investigation by the Special Investigation Unit of Manitoba Public Insurance, working in cooperation with the Headingley RCMP.
Manitobans are reminded they can anonymously report fraudulent claims by calling 985-8477 in Winnipeg, or 1-877-985-8477 outside Winnipeg or email tips@mpi.mb.ca.
