Isabella County Man in Jail for Embezzling from Former Employer

An Isabella County judge sent Jason Arntz to jail for a year for embezzlement.

Arntz was sentenced this morning in the Isabella County Circuit Court in Mount Pleasant.

Arntz padded claims for almost 3 years as an insurance agent in Saginaw.

He was sentenced on nearly $600,000 worth of fraudulent claims but his former employer, Auto Owners Insurance, believes the total could be closer to a million dollars.

Arntz received 5 years probation after his jail sentence.
