MASSENA - A Massena woman was charged this week with receiving food stamp benefits to which she was not entitled.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department charged Crystal L. Durocher, 42, of 20 Boynton St., Massena, with fourth-degree welfare fraud and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing following an investigation by the St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services Investigations Unit.

They alleged that Durocher submitted a food stamp benefits application/recertification with false income information to the Department of Social Services, and received $1,023 in food stamp benefits that she was not entitled to from Jan. 1, 2013 to July 31, 2013.
