Raymond Roth case

Authorities said Raymond Roth staged his own drowning on Jones Beach in July 2012 so his family could collect insurance money. Prosecutors contend his son Jonathan Roth, 22, who called police to report that his father had disappeared in the ocean, was in on the scheme. In March 2013, Nassau police arrested Raymond Roth on new charges that he twice posed as a police officer and ordered women to get into his van.
