OLYMPIA, Wash. – Daniel Acevedo has been added to Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s insurance fraud most wanted after he failed to appear in Spokane County Superior Court to face felony charges of filing a false insurance claim, attempted first-degree theft, second-degree theft and false reporting. 

If you have information that may lead to his arrest, please contact your local law enforcement agency or contact Kreidler's Criminal Investigations Unit (CIU).

Acevedo was charged in June 2019 after Kreidler’s investigation. According to the investigation, Acevedo reported his 2012 Subaru Forester stolen on April 21, 2018, to Progressive Insurance. He filed a report with Spokane County Sheriff’s Office stating the vehicle was stolen on April 22, 2018. Progressive found records showing the car was towed to an auto repair shop on April 9 and diagnosed with engine failure. 

Progressive denied the claim and referred the case to Kreidler’s detectives. 

Consumers can report suspected insurance fraud on the insurance commissioner’s website.
