Perrysburg woman indicted for arson, fraud

BOWLING GREEN — A Perrysburg woman charged with starting a fire at her business to collect the insurance money was indicted last week by a Wood County grand jury.

Patricia L. Groves, 57, was indicted for aggravated arson and insurance fraud stemming from a Dec. 20 fire at Downey Carpet Cleaning, 777 Dixie Hwy. in Rossford.

She is to be arraigned Friday before Wood County Common Pleas Judge Alan Mayberry.

Although the indictment alleges she made a false insurance claim between $7,500 and $150,000, records from Perrysburg Municipal Court, where the charges originated, allege Ms. Groves presented “a false oral statement about discovering a fire at her business to a Farmers Insurance representative in support of a claim for $14,787.”
