North Bergen Target Employee Stages Accident to Collect Worker's Compensation

Posted on Feb 28, 2012

Victoria Colon was an employee at a Target store in North Bergen.  She attempted to collect worker's compensation after she claimed to be injured from boxes falling onto her while she was working.  Upon investigation, video footage showed her loosening a stockroom shelf, then purposely bumping into it so the boxes would fall on top of her.  Afterwards, she strategically positioned herself underneath the boxes then also pulled down a shopping cart onto herself.  The video also showed her hitting her own head with something that may have been batteries.  Later on, Colon put in a claim to receive worker’s compensation.  She was arrested after the video footage showed her staging the accident herself.  Colon is now out on bail.  The charges against Colon can possibly lead to a conviction of up to ten years in prison.
