    Bellevue police Tuesday arrested a 17-year-old Sammamish resident they suspect of trying to work an insurance scam aimed at junking his 2002 BMW M3 so he could upgrade to a new Bentley.

    According to police spokesman Michael Chiu, the teenager reported his BMW stolen sometime Monday evening while working at his job at a restaurant in downtown Bellevue.

    Chiu said that after being arrested, however, they implicated the Sammamish resident, who they said wanted his BMW stolen and stripped so he could collect insurance money and buy a Bentley.

    A 2005 BMW M3 sells for a suggested price of about $47,000, according to an online search of new car prices.

    A 2005 Bentley Continental GT coupe, with a 552-horsepower engine and a top speed of 190 mph, runs about $159,000.
