Humble woman wanted on insurance fraud charge
HOUSTON Nicole Marie Malbrough, 26, was charged with insurance fraud after an investigation determined she allegedly submitted in February 2009 an altered invoice to defraud her insurance company, according to a Crime Stoppers statement. Detectives say Malbrough claimed her breaker box and appliances at her home were damaged by a power surge caused by lightning. She stated that a fire and security company had inspected her home and confirmed her submission, but an investigation into her claims determined that a power surge wasn't to blame for the defunct appliances and she had altered the claim. In April 2010, Malbrough was arrested for one felony count of Insurance fraud but bonded out days later. Days later, her bond was revoked and the court issued a new warrant without a bond. She is also wanted on an unrelated felony tampering with evidence warrant and felony possession of a controlled substance warrant. Malbrough is described as a black female, 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has black hair with brown eyes and a dark complexion. Malbrough's last known address is in the 7000 block of Foxmar Lane in Humble, Texas. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
