Former Apache officer arrested on complaint of insurance fraud

APACHE, Okla._A former Apache officer was arrested this week on a complaint of insurance fraud that occurred while working as a police officer for the Apache Police Department.

An agent with the Workers’ Compensation and Insurance Fraud Unit, through interviews and various insurance claims, found there was enough evidence to issue an arrest warrant for Bryan Scott Janz.

Janz’s insurance policy was canceled on May, 2014, for not being paid. He called to have the policy reinstated on June 4, 2014. The insurance agent asked if anyone in the household had been involved in any accidents, to which Janz said no. Janz called his insurance company shortly after and told them his wife had been an accident approximately 20 minutes after he had his policy reinstated.

However, phone logs and dispatch records show the accident involving his truck occurred before he initially called to have his vehicle insurance reinstated. The accident was called in at 11:08 a.m., Police Chief Huff, who was chief at the time, arrived on scene at 11:14 a.m. Janz’s call to reinstate his insurance was at 11:35 a.m. His second call to his insurance company was at 12:29 p.m.

Two agents later interviewed Bryan Janz about the incident and he admitted to the fraud. Janz is currently out on a $5,000 bond. He no longer works for the Apache Police Department.
