Woman Arrested After Charging Rent in Section 8 Housing


A Canandaigua woman has been arrested for renting out her Section 8 housing.

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports arresting Sarah Pallifrone on Thursday after it was discovered that she had been living with unauthorized persons since September 2022 in her South Main Street apartment. She was also collecting rent while receiving $11,649 in housing benefits she was not entitled to.

The 44-year-old was charged with Grand Larceny and taken to the Ontario County Jail for arraignment.

Pallifrone will answer the charges against her in Hopewell Town Court at a later date.
