Deputies arrested a 29-year-old Lyons resident on several charges after a welfare fraud investigation.


Deanna Johnson, 29, of Lyons was charged with two counts of welfare fraud, two counts of grand larceny, and three counts of offering a false instrument for filing.

All of the charges are felonies, deputies said.

The charges stemmed from an investigation into a fraud complaint where Johnson received assistance from multiple public sources and falsified information on those applications.

As result she received more than $2,242 illegally.

Johnson will answer the charges at a later date.
