Fraud Alert

Posted on 31st October 2013 at 16:10

Two people are under arrest after they allegedly tried to use a fraudulent check to open an account at a bank in downtown Longview. Clerks at Columbia Bank called Longview Police at about 11:15 yesterday morning, when a red flag popped up on the check, saying that the account had been closed back in April, with a fraud alert also issued at that time. When Longview Police met with Janelle Jill Rodeback, 27, and Cole Edward Jurek, 27, they found that both had outstanding warrants. Officers also claim that Jurek was in possession of illegal drugs. Both are now being held without bail in the Cowlitz County Jail.
