COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say a Nebraska man has been charged in Iowa with conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and other counts.

The Iowa Insurance Division says in a news release that 34-year-old Peere Shackelford, of Omaha, was also charged with second-degree arson and conspiracy to commit a felony following an investigation by the division and the Council Bluffs Fire Department.

Investigators say Shackelford gave false information to his insurance carrier back in October 2017 on an insurance claim following a vehicle fire.
