CANTON St. Lawrence County sheriffs deputies arrested a Norfolk woman Thursday following an investigation into alleged welfare fraud.
Investigation revealed that Anne P. Louissant, 52, of 16 Morris St., collected more than $9,000 in benefits to which she was not entitled, deputies said. Ms. Louissant allegedly provided false information on applications for Medicaid and food stamps.
The benefits in question were disbursed between April 2010 and September 2011, deputies said.
Ms. Louissant was arraigned in Norfolk Town court and committed to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
