West Clarksville woman arrested for welfare fraud, filing a false instrument
On January 14, 2019, SP Amity Troopers arrested Megan E. Borg, 29, of West Clarksville, NY for Welfare Fraud 4th Degree and Filing a False Instrument 1st Degree.
An investigation led Troopers to discover Borg had filed false paperwork with Allegany County DSS while applying for SNAP benefits, which resulted in Borg receiving $1,589.00 in benefits to which she was not entitled.
Borg was arrested and issued an appearance ticket for Belmont Village Court, where she is due to appear later this month.
