Mr. Brian Murray, 67, former head of Murray Insurance Agency Inc., was arrested late Thursday by agents from the state attorney general's insurance fraud section and arraigned before Magisterial District Judge John Pesota. 
Some of the victims of the alleged fraud include Moses Taylor Hospital, Mount Airy Casino Resort and several Jesuit universities, including the University of Scranton, which gave Mr. Murray, an ardent financial supporter, an honorary degree in 2006. 
Mr. Murray allegedly took their premium payments but left them uninsured. "This is theft on a grand scale, targeting an assortment of institutions throughout the region that placed their trust in Mr. Murray," Attorney General Tom Corbett said.
