MACON COUNTY — A middle Georgia contractor has been arrested on charges of Insurance Fraud related to Worker’s Compensation.
Mark Anthony Brannen, 50, was arrested on Tuesday by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation’s Enforcement Division related to work performed on a government housing project in Macon County.
Brannen, owner of Brannen Construction Company, has been in business for over 10 years, focusing on carpentry, painting and tile work.
Investigators claim Brannen created and passed bogus certificates of workers compensation insurance after becoming the successful bidder on the construction project. Once he began work he had violated the law.
The charge is a felony count of providing a fraudulent document to a government agency.
