Another 'victim' of Hurricane Katrina

"A 43-year-old woman was arrested Monday and charged with filing a false claim for assistance as a victim of Hurricane Katrina. Kim Horn, of Mason, is accused of defrauding the city, which is about 15 miles south of Lansing. She is also accused of bilking local charities, which contributed a house, money and other items to Horn and her 6-year-old daughter. Mason Police Chief John Stressman said Horn claimed she left Louisiana because of the hurricane, which hit the Gulf Coast Aug. 29. But Horn actually moved to Michigan nine days before the hurricane came ashore, Stressman said."
