Former Hixson insurance agent indicted for fraud

Steven Ruggiero indicted for insurance fraud.

A former insurance agent from Hixson has been arrested for insurance fraud, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

TBI special agents started investigating Steven Ruggiero in 2015 at the request of 12th District Attorney General Mike Taylor.

During the investigation, agents learned a victim bought a $9,147 insurance policy that turned out to be fraudulent. Ruggiero had no authority to sell or issue policies from that insurance company.

Ruggiero turned himself in to the Grundy County Jail Friday. He was booked on a $15,000 bond.
