LOS ANGELES, May 28 — The California Department of Insurance issued the following news release:

The California Department of Insurance has continued its concerted effort to stamp out auto insurance fraud in the Los Angeles area, often viewed as the auto fraud capitol of the state. Fraudulent activity ranging from staged automobile accidents to fraudulent vehicle vandalism have been stamped out in recent months. Upon conviction, the individuals arrested for these crimes face from two to five years in prison and fines up to $ 50,000 for each offense.
