CANTON — In the month of December, investigators from the St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services and the district attorney’s office investigated numerous cases of reported fraud.

The county obtained judicial settlement of $49,392 and sanctioned individuals, preventing them from receiving further benefits from the programs they defrauded. Investigations are continuing and arrests are pending.

The programs affected by the reported fraud include SNAP (food stamps), Temporary Assistance, Day Care, Medicaid and HEAP.

The public is encouraged to report any suspected welfare fraud activity by calling the Social Services Investigations Unit at 379-2145 or by filing a complaint at http://wdt.me/DnCrJw. Reporters may remain anonymous.
