SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A Fontana man was arrested on insurance fraud charges earlier this month following an investigation conducted by the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Workers' Compensation Insurance Fraud Unit.

Jamie Gallardo, 45, is charged with a violation of Insurance Code § 1871.4, Workers’ Compensation Insurance Fraud.

It is alleged that on or about April 21, 2010 through April 19, 2014, Gallardo was employed at California Coach & Body located in the City of Walnut. During this time, Gallardo filed a workers' compensation claim alleging he sustained injuries to his chest and back while performing his job duties.

According to Senior District Attorney Investigator Rodney Tamparong, an investigation into possible fraud resulted in the current allegation that Gallardo presented a knowingly false or fraudulent statement in order to obtain Workers' Compensation benefits.

After obtaining an arrest warrant, investigators--with assistance from officers from the Fontana Police Department--arrested Gallardo at his place of residence Feb. 2. Gallardo was transported and booked into the West Valley Detention Center.


This case will be prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Scott Byrd. If convicted, Gallardo faces five years County prison. Arraignment is scheduled
March 24 at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court.
