SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities have charged two East Bay women with more than a dozen felonies in an extensive workers’ compensation fraud scheme that netted more than half a million dollars.

Adela Delores Belfrey, 52, a claims adjuster at AmTrust North America, and Catherine Gregoire, 52, an ex-employee of the same firm, were taken into custody Thursday, authorities said.

San Francisco District Attorney’s Office investigators arrested them on suspicion of carrying out a scheme to deposit about $528,000 of company funds into bank accounts controlled by Gregoire. She reportedly created multiple shell companies to facilitate the fraud, then submitted claims to Belfrey for approval.
