A Remsen woman is charged with one count of Insurance Fraud following an investigation by the Iowa Insurance Division’s Fraud Bureau. 

The charge against 32-year-old Stephanie Lynn Rink, is the result of an investigation which began in March of 2020. According to a criminal complaint filed by the Iowa Insurance Fraud Bureau, Rink was involved in a motor vehicle collision in June of 2019. Rink was later involved in a second collision in August of 2019. After the August 2019 collision, Rink provided false information to her insurance company indicating damage from the June 2019 collision had been repaired, when it had not, in order to obtain additional insurance benefits to which she would not have otherwise been entitled.

 

On February 25, 2021, Rink was arrested and charged with one count of Presenting False Information, a Class D Felony.  She was booked into the Plymouth County Jail and later released after posting a $5,000 bond. Trial will be set for a future date.
