Insurance office in Lyons raided

Posted: Updated:

Agents from the state insurance commissioner's office raided a Lyons insurance office Monday.

Sherry Mowell, director of the fraud investigations division, said they've received complaints against LLS Insurance Agency.

"We've had complaints from people who said they've been in wrecks or been pulled over and were advised they bad no insurance on record," Mowell stated.

John Mitchell was one of those customers. He learned of his problems from the county tag office.

"She told me my insurance had lapsed and I thought it couldn't have. I'd just paid while ago," he recalled.

Mowell said agents had seized records and computers to determine how many customers do not have coverage. She worried the problem could extend to homeowner insurance policies as well.

A representative from Aggressive insurance was on site, assisting the investigators. Customers with Aggressive policies can check on their coverage at 866.424.9511.

Anyone with questions can contact the state information line at 800.656.2298.
