Tanya A. Schettler, 48, of West Des Moines, Iowa, was recently charged with one count of Insurance Fraud – Presenting False Information (Class D Felony).
The charges are the result of an investigation by the Iowa Insurance Division’s Fraud Bureau which began in August of 2020. In a criminal complaint filed by the Iowa Insurance Division’s Fraud Bureau, it is alleged Schettler provided false information to an insurer related to the date of loss to a commercial property resulting from a fire, knowing the loss had occurred during a period when no insurance coverage was in effect.
On November 24, 2021, Schettler was arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail. Schettler was later released after posting a $5,000 bond. Trial will be set for a future date. No additional details will be provided at this time, the department of insurance said in a news release.
