Welfare Fraud Charge Follows DSS Investigation

Local News

Investigators say a woman from Truxton didn’t report a change in her household last July to DSS.

Last Thursday, Sheriff’s Investigator Sgt. Jason Newcomb charged Moriah Moore, 29, with felony counts of Offering a False Instrument For Filing, Welfare Fraud, and Grand Larceny, plus other charges.

Newcomb says the investigation turned up more fraudulent documents in October and November.

Moore is accused of receiving more than $1,800 in benefits she wasn’t entitled to.

She’s to appear in Cortland City Court next Wednesday.
