Date Posted: Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018


Newark –  On Tuesday, July 3, 2018 Jane A. Macauley, 30, of Middletown turned herself in at Delaware State Police Troop 2 on active warrants charging her with falsely reporting a carjacking.

The original incident occurred at approximately 9:31 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, 2018, on DE Route 71 (Red Lion Road), in the area of Old Summit Road, Bear. Macauley advised the investigating Trooper that her Chevrolet Impala was rear ended by another vehicle and after pulling over to assess the damage, an occupant of the striking vehicle entered  her vehicle and drove off. Through a variety of investigative measures, detectives were able to determine that Macauley falsely reported the incident in order to make a fraudulent insurance claim.

Macauley was charged with one count each of Insurance Fraud and Falsely Reporting an Incident. She was then arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court #2 and released on $2000.00 unsecured bail.
