FORT EDWARD — A Hudson Falls woman was charged with grand larceny in recent days for alleged public assistance fraud, authorities said.

Monica L. Hawsey, 43, of John Street, was arrested when Washington County officials determined she failed to report all of her household income last spring when receiving public assistance, resulting in her receiving $3,632 in public assistance to which she wasn't entitled, authorities said.

She was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, and released pending prosecution in Fort Edward Town Court.

Sheriff's Investigator Greg Danio made the arrest, assisted by the Washington County Department of Social Services.
