Waterloo woman arrested in Wayne County welfare fraud investigation

The Wayne County Office of the Sheriff’s Welfare Fraud Unit, in conjunction with the Wayne County Department of Social Services, reports the arrest of Tiffani M. Pascarella, 22, Waterloo.

An investigation was initiated by the Department of Social Services after it was discovered that Pascarella possibly failed to report that she was currently employed while attempting to receive food stamps.

After the investigation it was determined that Pascarella intentionally failed to report that she was employed while completing her application for SNAP benefits at the Wayne County Department of Social Services.

It was also confirmed that Pascarella had actually started working through ADECCO a week prior to coming in and completing her application.

Pascarella was arrested for first-degree offering a false instrument for filing at the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office in Lyons.

She was issued an appearance ticket and was released to appear in the Town of Lyons Court on a later date to answer the charge.
