SHARE NOW

An Alfred Station woman is facing welfare fraud charges in Wayne County.

The charges against Nicole Ellsworth stem from an investigation by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and the Wayne County Department of Social Services. It is alleged the 29-year-old was a recipient of SNAP benefits but did not report the income she was receiving. As a result, Ellsworth collected $4,452.00 worth of SNAP benefits she was not entitled to.

Ellsworth was charged with grand larceny, welfare fraud, and offering a false instrument for filing and was held at the Wayne County Jail for CAP arraignment.
