EVERETT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Six people involved with an Everett auto body shop have been indicted in connection with a million-dollar insurance fraud scheme, according to a press release from the Middlesex County District Attorney's office.

After a two-year investigation, the DA's office alleged Monday the employees of Riviera Auto Body "orchestrated the submission of scores of insurance claims for customers."

Investigators alleged the suspects defrauded insurance carriers out of more than one million dollars in payments over several years.

Fabio Rodrigo Jordao Correa of Saugus, Jose Manuel Gordon of Roxbury, Tabajara Alves Ribeiro of Saugus and Revere RMV clerk Wanda Greene have been arraigned.

They face a range of charges, including conspiracy to commit larceny and receiving a bribe as a public employee, according to the press release.

The DA's office said two other suspects also face charges, but they remain on the run.

Investigators said they believe Jhon Alexander Lopera Munera of Revere and Edwin Alexander Lopera Munera of Pawtucket, RI fled to Colombia.
