Stallings had reported her SUV stolen and filed an insurance claim for $18,500. The vehicle was later discovered in Washington, D.C. It had been torched, according to Philly.com.

Despite her claim that the vehicle had been stolen, evidence allegedly placed Stallings at the scene.

Stallings was previously an executive chief of strategic services for the fire department. Under a department reorganization earlier in the year, she was moved from that position to paramedic captain, according to Philly.com.
