Tammy L. Dyer
Investigators with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office arrested Tammy L. Dyer, 51, of Chittenango, on March 15 and charged her with welfare fraud in the fourth degree, an E Felony, and offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree, an E Felony.
It is alleged that Dyer signed and submitted a public assistance application to the Madison County Department of Social services that contained false information pertaining to her husband’s income. As a result of this fraudulent act, Dyer received $2,303 in public assistance for which she was not eligible.
Dyer is scheduled to answer these charges in Lenox Town Court on April 4.
