The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a 38-year-old Waterloo man following a welfare fraud investigation.
Robert Law Jr., 38, of Waterloo was charged with fourth-degree welfare fraud and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing.
It’s alleged that Law received public assistance benefits from Seneca County while not being eligible for them due to unreported income.
He had an active warrant for his arrest in Wayne County stemming from failing to appear in family court. Deputies say Law was turned over to their office, where he faces additional charges. He was also recently arrested following an investigation into stolen catalytic converters.
The charges in Seneca County will be answered at a later date in local court.
