Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt announced that Nancy Ramirez Lozano, also known as Nancy Ramirez Montelongo, 42, of North Las Vegas, pleaded guilty to one count of insurance fraud.
The fraud was committed between October and November 2013. 
Lozano initiated a claim under a State Farm insurance policy in which she fraudulently represented that her motor vehicle had been stolen while parked in front of her brother’s residence in Las Vegas.
Lozano did so knowing that her motor vehicle had been parked in Stockton, California in a damaged condition on the day of the alleged theft. As a result of Lozano’s fraud, insurance benefits were paid on her behalf.
Insurance fraud is punishable by up to four years of imprisonment and a fine of no more than $5,000.
The sentencing hearing for Lozano is scheduled for October 17, 2016 in the Eighth Judicial District Court.
