Bolivar man arrested for welfare fraud, filing a false instrument
On April 2, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Joseph R. Fenti, 25, of Bolivar, NY for Filing a False Instrument 1st Degree and Welfare Fraud 5th Degree.
An investigation led Troopers to discover Fenti had filed false paperwork with Allegany County DSS, by which he obtained $302.00 of public assistance to which he was not entitled.
Fenti was arrested and released with an appearance ticket returnable to Belmont Village Court where he is due to appear later this month.
