CORNWALL, Ontario – A 24-year-old Monkland woman is facing numerous charges after Cornwall police allege she received $10,743.48 in public assistance benefits she wasn’t entitled to.
City cops arrested Carrie Anderson on Thursday at her residence.
Police allege the suspect forged receipts and failed to declare changes in her living arrangements and income to the Ontario Works Resource Centre between January, 2013 and March, 2014, which resulted in an overpayment.
The woman has been charged with fraud under $5,000, fraud over $5,000, and utter forged documents.
She was taken into custody and released to appear in court on March 17.
