Co-owner of Vallejo auto repair shop sentenced for fraud

FAIRFIELD — The co-owner of an auto body repair shop in Vallejo has been sentenced to 30 days OF home detention, placed on probation and ordered to pay restitution of about $40,000 to Farmers Insurance after an investigation revealed damaged vehicles were patched with filler material and painted, rather than fitted with new replacement parts as paid for by Farmers.

Armand Terence Eulano was sentenced July 10 in Solano County Superior Court after his earlier no-contest pleas to three felony counts of automobile insurance fraud, the District Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

G Collision, his business, has since permanently closed.

The case began when investigators from the Farmers Insurance Special Investigation Unit randomly re-inspected a vehicle serviced at G Collision and discovered that a vehicle body part had only been repaired, even though Farmers Insurance had paid G Collision for a new replacement part, the District Attorney’s Office said in the release.

A second discrepancy was discovered involving painting of the rear bumper.

Farmers Insurance then randomly re-inspected 11 other vehicles it had recently paid G Collision to repair and discovered similar deviations in repairs on all of the vehicles. Many of the damaged vehicles were simply patched with filler material, such as Bondo, and painted, rather than fitted with new replacement parts, the District Attorney’s Office said in the release.

The California Department of Insurance investigated the case and interviewed the vehicles’ owners, also victims of G Collision’s fraud, and all identified Eulano as the person who handled their Farmers Insurance claims at his business.

Upon completion of CDI’s investigation, the case was submitted to the District Attorney’s Office, which filed a felony complaint in October 2013 against Eulano charging him with committing insurance fraud and grand theft against Farmers Insurance.
