WOMAN CHARGED WITH WELFARE FRAUD

Joanne M. Calabro, 34, of 230 Church St. was arrested on welfare fraud charges Friday, Officer Barry L. Moss reported.

Ms. Calabro was charged with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, misuse of food stamps and petit larceny. She was arrested at her home at 5:20 p.m.

Moss said the woman failed to report receiving unemployment benefits to the county Social Services Department, resulting in her obtaining $476.50 in welfare money and $81 worth of food stamps she was not entitled to between July and September.
