A New Jersey has been man charged with insurance fraud and identity theft after police said he used the Bensalem address of his ex-wife to add his car to her insurance policy.

Stephen Sabo, 39, of the 500 block of Miller Avenue in Hamilton, N.J., was due in court for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday. The charges are being held for court in his absence, according to a court clerk. 

Police allege that Sabo added his 2002 Cadillac Deville to his ex-wife's State Farm insurance policy on Sept. 29 and listed her Bensalem address as his own on the six-month policy, which cost $802.72. The woman reported it to police on Oct. 1, according to court documents. 

When questioned by police on Oct. 29, Sabo said that State Farm "made a mistake" in adding his car to his ex's insurance, according to court documents. 

That same day, police spoke to a State Farm representative and were told that Sabo provided the Bensalem address as his own, according to court documents. The policy was soon cancelled because Sabo's driver's license was suspended and the account provided for the first payment was a closed account, according to court records. 

He remains free after posting $30,000 unsecured bail.
