Cape Coral Chiropractic Physician Arrested After Stealing Over $64,000

1/14/2018

For Immediate Release: January 14, 2018
Contact: Jon Moore, 850.413.2842, Jon.Moore1@myfloridacfo.com 
 
CAPE CORAL, Fla. – CFO and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis and the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) announced today the recent arrest of Renoir Cadet, a licensed healthcare practitioner holding a certified Chiropractic Physician’s Assistant license.  Cadet faces charges of forgery, uttering, scheme to defraud, and grand theft after allegedly stealing $64,436 in insurance claim monies from his business partner at Image Chiropractic.
 
After receiving a tip of alleged fraud, Division of Investigative and Forensic Services (DIFS) investigators opened an investigation. As a result, investigators learned Cadet had been receiving additional insurance checks and not reporting them to his business partner.  After receiving the checks, Cadet would then forge his partner’s signature, as the checks were made out him, and deposit them into Cadet’s personal account without his partner’s knowledge or consent.  In total, Cadet deposited an estimated $64,436 into his personal account.
 
Cadet was arrested January 10, 2018 at Image Chiropractic and booked into Lee County Jail without incident.  Cadet has been charged with 76 counts of forgery and uttering along with one count of scheme to defraud and grand theft.  Bail has been set at $70,000.
 
This case will be prosecuted by the Lee County State Attorney’s Office and if convicted, Cadet could face up to 30 years in prison.
