Henrietta Brice, 53, and her daughter, Larrisa Coleen Brice, 24, were arrested on two counts of insurance fraud, according to California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones' office.

Henrietta Brice is also charged with one count of arson and grand theft, according to Jones.

The arrests stem from an alleged incident that took place on Dec. 29 and 30, 2009. On Dec. 29, 2009, Henrietta Brice told a sheriff's deputy during a traffic enforcement stop that she was going to call her insurance company and get herself a new car, according to California Department of Insurance investigators.

The next day, an explosion was reported near East Wyman Road and South McKinley Avenue in French Camp. Henrietta Brice's car was found abandoned and burning in the middle of a field. On Dec. 31, the elder Brice phoned her insurance company and reported that her car had been stolen and burned, the state Department of Insurance reported.

Henrietta and Larrisa were arraigned on Wednesday in San Joaquin County Superior Court. If convicted, Henrietta Brice faces a $200,000 fine and five years in state prison, while her daughter faces a $100,000 and five years in prison.
