Cuba woman arrested for welfare fraud, filing a false instrument
On November 26, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Demetria E. Johnson, 57, of Cuba, NY for Welfare Fraud 3rd Degree and Filing a False Instrument 1st Degree.
An investigation led Troopers to discover Johnson had filed false paperwork with Allegany County DSS while applying for public assistance, which resulted in Johnson receiving $448.00 in benefits to which she was not entitled.
Johnson was arrested and issued an appearance ticket for Belmont Village Court, where she is due to appear in December.
