RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - State officials have accused a North Carolina woman of filing nearly 300 insurance claims for cancer although she didn’t have the disease.

The N.C. Department of Insurance said in a news release Tuesday 60-year-old Susan Leigh Huebotter is charged with insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretenses over $100,000.

According to the department, Huebotter presented 287 cancer and hospitalization policy claims that weren’t true. According to the arrest warrants, Huebotter made the claims between 2009 and 2017without being diagnosed, treated or having surgery for cancer.

Warrants say the false claims totaled $231,306.

Huebotter was arrested on March 22 in Lenoir County. She is jailed on a $250,000 secured bond. Online records didn’t indicate whether she has an attorney.
