Investigators say a Watkins Glen duo were arrested on October 21 after an investigation into unreported income, which resulted in theft of more than $100,000 in public benefits.
Louis Latorre, 47, and Kimberly Latorre, 44, were charged with felony counts of welfare fraud, grand larceny, and offering a false instrument for filing.
The two are accused of ailing to report income they received, which made them ineligible for public benefits.
As result, they received over $100,000 in benefits illegally.
They were arraigned and will answer the charges at a later date.
