Lowville- A 47 year old Port Leyden woman is facing charges after filing for SNAP benefits.

Deputies say Cindy S. Tack allegedly failed to report the income in her residence after filing for SNAP benefits on two separate dates, which opened investigations by police. Reports indicate if Tack reported the income at the time of application, or at recertification, the case would not have been opened, due to excess income.

She was charged with Welfare Fraud, Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the 2nd Degree and Grand Larceny. Tack was processed at the Public Safety Building, arraigned in the Village of Lowville Court and released on her own recognizance. No further details were released.
