She should have been arrested just for being dumb enough to think no one would find out.

Coworkers of a Florida sheriff’s detective donated hundreds of their sick-leave hours to her, believing she was severely ill with COVID-19, but she was faking the entire thing, authorities said.

Trent Kellee Freeman, 38, even went so far as to claim she was comatose in a hospital, the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office said.

While pretending to be out sick, the Bronson woman was actually working at another full-time job outside of law enforcement, the department said.

“Agents discovered that Freeman filed multiple sets of fraudulent Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) paperwork, forging the signatures of area doctors to support her false claims of extensive hospitalization for severe COVID-19 and other medical issues,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement released Dec. 15.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested her on forgery and fraud charges.

An investigation found that she defrauded the department of about $3,727
