    A Marysville couple were charged with insurance fraud that stemmed from a false auto insurance claim, the Snohomish County Superior Court announced Monday. 

    Brittany Jones and Steven Jones were each  charged with one count of filing a false insurance claim May 14, following an investigation by the Washington State Insurance Commission's Criminal Investigations Unit. 

    According to the investigation, the couple added a 2011 Ford Escape to their Geico insurance policy at 6:08 a.m. June 18. They filed a claim of $11,273 for a collision they said happened 20 minutes after they purchased the new policy.

    GEICO found records that the car was towed from the collision scene at 5 a.m. that day and denied the claim, referring the case to the state. 

    The charges were filed in Snohomish Coutny Superior Court.
