SUMNER COUNTY 10-13-2023 – An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation into theft allegations stemming from insurance-related activity in Sumner County has resulted in the indictment and arrest of six people.

On March 11, 2020, at the request of 18th Judicial District Attorney General Ray Whitley, TBI agents, assisted by the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (Insurance Division), investigated a report of insurance-related theft. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that Johnny Ray Jackson, a former insurance agent whose license was revoked in 1999, continued to operate a business in Gallatin called Senior Health and Wealth Marketing, as well as other multiple names over many years.  Jackson employed several people, some of whom were licensed insurance agents with the state. The investigation further revealed that clients were paying for insurance policies they did not want or authorize.

On October 4th, the Sumner County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Jackson and five other people with charges ranging from conspiracy, identify theft, financial exploitation of the elderly, and money laundering.  During the past week, TBI agents and officers with the Gallatin Police Department arrested the following individuals, who have been booked into the Sumner County Jail:
