Niagara Falls man accused in unemployment benefits fraud case

LOCKPORT – A 33-year-old man has been accused of fraudulently obtaining more than $3,800 in unemployment benefits while working for a food distributor, according to State Police.

Joseph W. Magliazzo, of Niagara Falls, was charged Tuesday with felony counts of grand larceny, offering a false instrument for filing and falsifying business records. Troopers said Magliazzo received unemployment benefits from December 2012 to May 2013, while working for the distributor, and also failed to report income from that job.

Magliazzo was issued a ticket to appear Sept. 23 in Lockport City Court.
