NASHVILLE- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in a joint effort with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department arrested a Davidson County man for fraud and identity theft.
Frederick Afful-Turkson, 39, of Antioch was arrested in Davidson County last Friday on one felony count of Fraud and one felony count of Identity Theft. Investigators have been working tirelessly to locate Turkson since obtaining warrants for his arrest last year. From January 2008 to March 2010, Turkson used the identity of a relative to work for agencies that billed TennCare for services provided to developmentally disabled individuals. Turkson was previously placed on the Tennessee Department of Health Abuse Registry, which prevented him from using his own identity to secure employment. Further investigation will be conducted to determine if additional charges will be obtained.
Turkson was booked into the Davidson County jail on $125,000 bond
