(CROWN POINT) - A Crown Point Man is behind bars and faces 11 felony counts following an investigation into possible insurance fraud.

Indiana State Police say 39-year-old Marlon Leon Underwood was arrested Wednesday on one count of racketeering, five counts of forgery and five counts of identity deception.

Underwood was a broker at the American Freedom Financial Insurance office in Highland, Indiana but his insurance broker's license was suspended in 2010.

The investigation into Underwood began in July 2012 after a complaint was filed by the Indiana Department of Insurance. Police say Underwood primarily sold insurance to elderly people from the Gary area and many of Underwood's victims were elderly.

Investigators believe there may be more victims involved in the case and ask anyone who believes they are a victim to call Indiana State Police.

Underwood is being held in the Lake County Jail without bond.
