CANTON — In the month of December, investigators from the St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services and the district attorney’s office investigated numerous cases of reported fraud.

The county obtained judicial settlement of $49,392 and sanctioned individuals, preventing them from receiving further benefits from the programs they defrauded. Investigations are continuing and arrests are pending.

The programs affected by the reported fraud include SNAP (food stamps), Temporary Assistance, Day Care, Medicaid and HEAP.
