Bolivar woman arrested for welfare fraud, filing a false instrument
On August 22, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Stephanie J. Moyer, 37, of Bolivar, NY for Filing a False Instrument 1st Degree and one count of Welfare Fraud 3rd Degree.
An investigation led Troopers to discover Moyer had filed false paperwork with Allegany County DSS while applying for public assistance, which resulted in Moyer receiving $6,019 in benefits to which she was not entitled.
Moyer was arrested and arraigned in Friendship Town Court where she was remanded to the Allegany County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail or $10,000 bond. She is due to appear in Belmont Village Court later this month.
