FORT EDWARD -- A Fort Ann woman who allegedly received food stamps from two states was arrested Thursday on a felony grand larceny charge, police said.
Viola Lazure, 65, was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny because she was improperly receiving food stamp benefits in Washington County and was also receiving them from the state of Florida
Lazure had spent winters in Florida and was using a food stamp debit card from that state, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
That made her ineligible to receive benefits in New York, but she applied for and received $3,192 worth, police said.
Lazure was released pending prosecution in Fort Edward Town Court. The Sheriff's Office and county Department of Social Services investigated the case.
