QUEENSBURY -- A Queensbury woman was charged with two felonies this week for allegedly filing false documents to recent nearly $6,000 in student aid for college, police said.
Danielle T. Robillard, 36, of North Court was arrested after an investigation by the Warren County Sheriff's Office.
Robillard is accused of using a "forged document" when applying for financial aid to attend Empire State College, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
Sheriff's Lt. Steve Stockdale said he could not disclose what the forged document was because of medical confidentiality laws, but the false information allowed Robillard to receive $5,956 in federal grants and loans.
The investigation began after the Sheriff's Office received a tip about the alleged fraud, Stockdale said.
Robillard was engaged in the college's distance learning program.
Robillard was charged with felony counts of grand larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument and released pending prosecution in Queensbury Town Court.
Sheriff's Investigator Chris Hatin handled the case.
