The Wild Tale of History’s Biggest Crop Insurance Scam

Sep 14, 2020 at 04:02 PM CST

Intent on exposing the biggest crop insurance fraud in U.S. history and hoping to flip a grower to state’s evidence, investigator Don Doles walked across a farm yard toward a Ford pickup parked beside an old shed. At the site of Doles’ approach, the farmer broke from the shed and threw open the truck’s driver-side door, lurched across the seat—one leg in the cab, one leg out—and began frantically searching inside the console. Doles had two choices: sprint for cover or give chase.
