Two local men were arrested Monday on felony charges that accuse them of receiving more than $4,000 in unemployment payments to which they were not entitled, police said.
John W. Smith, 32, of Queensbury was charged with third-degree grand larceny after an investigation by the state Department of Labor and State Police.
He allegedly received the payments while living at a relative’s home in Dresden, police said.
Roger D. Myers, 28, of Hudson Falls was also charged with third-degree grand larceny in connection with allegations he received unemployment payments to which he was not entitled while living in Kingsbury.
Both men were released pending prosecution in Dresden and Kingsbury courts, respectively.
