A MAN trashed his pizza restaurant and ice cream shop and faked a racially motivated burglary so he could file an insurance claim, police claim.
Police arrested 31-year-old Edawn Louis Coughman on charges of false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a licence plate.
The back door had pry marks and officers saw swastikas, “MAGA” and racial slurs on the walls inside.
Officers searched Coughman’s truck and found a crowbar, cans of spray paint and televisions that had been “stolen” from the shop. Police claimed Coughman planned to claim on insurance claim and sell the undamaged appliances.
