RIDGEWAY, N.Y. (WIVB) – An Orleans County woman has been arrested on charges of welfare fraud.

Between October 2012 and November 2013, State Police say Kathy Mungenast collected over $8,500 in SNAP benefits she was not entitled to by claiming she lived in Lyndonville while actually living with her boyfriend in Ridgeway.

The 50-year-old is charged with third degree welfare fraud and first degree offer to file a false instrument.

She is due back in Albion Court next month.
