LAFAYETTE - Yesterday state police used their insurance fraud division to arrest five people on counts ranging from felony theft to insurance fraud.

This was the result of an investigation of staged wrecks that occurred on roads in the Saint Landry Parish area.

The crooks would then file claims with the insurance company, scamming around $113,000.
