JAMESTOWN – A Village of Frewsburg woman was charged Monday with welfare fraud after the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office said she did not report her daughter’s income allowing her to collect over $2,000 in unentitled benefits.

Tammy Ingerson, 44, is charged with fourth-degree welfare fraud, first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, misuse of food stamps and fourth-degree grand larceny.











Deputies alleged that from October 01, 2015, through February 29, 2016, Ingerson failed to notify the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services that her daughter had income/employment while residing with her.

This unreported income allowed for Ingerson to receive $2,120.00 in unentitled benefits, according to deputies.







Ingerson is scheduled to appear in the City of Jamestown court at a later date.

To report incidents of suspected welfare fraud, deputies ask residents to call the Chautauqua County Welfare Fraud Hotline at 1-800-388-5365.
