A 62-year-old Town of Arcadia woman has been arrested by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office following an investigation by the county’s Department of Social Services.
Emilia Guilliams was arrested upon the completion of an investigation where it was determined her son was living with her at her home and not reporting his income to DSS. Officers were able to confirm Guilliams was not reporting the additional income to her household since August of last year. As a result, she was able to obtain more than 38-HUNDRED dollars worth of cash assistance and Medicaid coverage she should have never received.
Guilliams was charged with welfare fraud, grand larceny, and offering a false instrument for filing.
