OLYMPIA, Wash. – Brandalynn (Monroe) White, 36, was arrested in Las Vegas yesterday after spending three months on Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s insurance fraud most wanted.
Kreidler’s detectives worked with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to locate and arrest White. She is being held at Clark County Detention Center in Nevada while she waits for an extradition hearing.
White failed to appear in Snohomish County Superior Court in November 2018 to face a charge of filing a false insurance claim. A bench warrant for her arrest was issued.
According to the investigation, White damaged her 2010 Ford Focus in a 2015 collision. At the time, her insurer, Omni Insurance Group, denied the claim, citing false information that White provided about the circumstances.
In February 2016, she purchased an auto insurance policy from Lyndon Southern Insurance Co. and filed a claim six days later, claiming the car was damaged by a hit-and-run driver while it was parked at her residence. Lyndon Southern found the 2015 denied claim, which was filed for the same damage to the vehicle. Lyndon rejected the 2016 claim and referred the case to Kreidler.
If you have information about anyone on Kreidler’s most wanted list, contact your local law enforcement agency or Kreidler's Criminal Investigations Unit (CIU).
Kreidler’s CIU investigates insurance fraud and works with Washington State Patrol and state and local prosecutors on criminal cases. Insurance fraud costs the average family $400 to $700 per year in increased premiums. Insurance companies are required by law to report fraud to the commissioner.
