NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - A North Platte man accused of driving his car into a canal so he could collect on his insurance has taken a plea deal with prosecutors.

Thirty-two-year-old Josh Salisbury has pleaded no contest and been convicted of insurance fraud. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 26 in Lincoln County District Court. Prosecutors dropped forgery and other charges as part of the plea deal.

Police say Salisbury reported June 28, 2014, that the car was parked in front of his home when it was stolen. The car was pulled from the canal in Lincoln County on Aug. 11, 2014. Police says investigators later learned that Salisbury drove the car into the canal and collected $27,500 in insurance.
