New Jersey announced that the owner of an Essex County trucking company has been charged with bilking nearly $389,000 from his insurance carrier by providing false payroll information to obtain lower premiums on workers compensation coverage. Elvis Parra, owner of E&K Trucking, Inc. in Newark, was indicted Friday on second-degree charges of theft by deception and misconduct by a corporate official, third-degree insurance fraud, and fourth-degree workers compensation fraud in connection with the alleged scheme that cheated Liberty Mutual Insurance Company (“Liberty Mutual”) out of premiums. According to the indictment, Parra falsely represented that his trucking company employed only three drivers who were paid a total of $75,000 annually, when in reality he paid more than $2.9 million in annual wages to an additional 81 owner/operator drivers, according to prosecutors.
