    Bulloch County Sheriff's deputies, assisting the Georgia Insurance Commissioner's office, arrested a     Statesboro man Wednesday morning on charges of insurance fraud.
    Insurance Commissioner John W. Oxendine said John W. King, 28, Canterbury Court, was charged with two counts of insurance fraud because he "allegedly forged the signatures of two elderly Columbus, Ga., residents on applications for Medicare Advantage policies."
    King works with Parker and Associates in Metter, said Glenn Allen, spokesman for Oxendine's office.
    Oxendine, several agents from his office, and Bulloch County Sheriff's Deputy Bob Dinello arrived at King's home around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and took him into custody without incident.
    "My office is constantly on the lookout for agents to attempt to abuse the public's trust," Oxendine said.
    King was transported to the Bulloch County Jail, where he faces further court action.
