Hemet man arraigned on workers’ comp charges


SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.– A Hemet man was arraigned on insurance fraud charges Thursday following an investigation conducted by the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Workers’ Compensation Insurance Fraud Unit.

Raymond Chastain, 23, is charged with one felony count of Insurance Fraud.

On Oct. 26, 2012, Chastain filed a workers’ compensation claim alleging that he sustained injuries while performing his job duties as a worker for TPG Staffing.

“Our investigation revealed that Mr. Chastain failed to report additional earned income while receiving total temporary disability benefits,” said Senior District Attorney Investigator Rodney Tamparong, who is assigned to the case.

After obtaining an arrest warrant, investigators arrested Chastain at his place of residence in Nov. 2015. He was booked into the West Valley Detention Center on $50,000 bail.

This case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Scott Byrd.
