OLYMPIA, WA – Three Pierce County residents were charged with crimes related to insurance fraud in Pierce County Superior Court after investigations by Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s Criminal Investigations Unit (CIU). All three were charged by the Washington state Attorney General’s Office and are scheduled to appear for arraignments on Feb. 8.

Former insurance agent Abu Ameena Ward, of Lakewood, was charged with one count of first-degree theft. According to the investigation, Ward illegally collected more than $32,904 in commissions from Farmer’s Insurance after writing 51 fake renter’s insurance policies from December 2013 until January 2016. Ward became licensed to sell insurance in 2012 and Kreidler revoked his license in November 2017. Farmer’s terminated Ward’s employment in June 2016 for writing the questionable policies.  

Former insurance agent Lilibeth Brulotte, of Gig Harbor, was charged with second-degree theft. According to the investigation, Brulotte wrote comprehensive-only auto insurance policies for fake vehicles on existing Farmer’s Insurance policies from February 2013 through October 2015. She wrote the policies to give clients a multi-car discount. She collected $4,668 in payments and caused $3,420 in lost premiums to Farmers, for a total loss of $8,088. Brulotte became licensed to sell insurance in 2012 and Kreidler revoked her license in 2017.
