Katrina Fraud Indictment

A former resident of Lynn Haven, Randy Doick, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pensacola for three counts of making false claims to F-E-M-A and three counts of stealing money from the United States government.

The indictment alleges that in September 2005, Doick applied for F-E-M-A disaster assistance, claiming an address in Biloxi, Mississippi as his primary residence damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

In fact, he did not live in Mississippi when Katrina struck, according to the U-S Attorney’s office. But, instead lived in Lynn Haven and suffered no disaster-related losses at all.

Doick received a total of $6,000 as a result of his alleged false claims.
