Two from Columbia charged in Pa. insurance fraud sweep

Zachery Helm, 24, of the 100 block of South Fourth Street, Columbia, Lancaster County and Ivan Fontanez of the 600 block of East Marion Street, Lancaster, Lancaster County, were charged with insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit it.

Breanne Rudolph, 28, was charged with insurance fraud and theft by deception. Investigators allege she tried to get money from her insurer by lying regarding a vehicle damage claim, knowing her insurance wasn't in effect when the loss occured. Her last known address was in the 500 block of Walnut Street in Columbia and she is being sought "as a fugitive," the office said.


  1. We are grad this type of scum is gone,we think the mayor and town will agree.

  2. awesome!!! now to catch the hundreds misusing welfare. and disability.

  3. Good luck on that. The difference is welfare fraud is quite simple to accomplish. Disability on the other hand involves doctor documentation, rather hard to misuse.
