A Wappingers Falls woman was nabbed for ripping off the welfare system of more than $3,000 in illegally obtained benefits, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

Ann Marie Rosario, 48, was arrested Thursday following an investigation by the Sheriff's Department, and the Dutchess County Department of Community and Family Services, said Capt. John Watterson.

The investigation found that Rosario illegally obtained over $3,000 in SNAP benefits between June and Sept 2016 by allegedly concealing the fact that she had other outside income, said Watterson.

Rosario was charged with welfare fraud.

After being processed Rosario was arraigned at the City of Poughkeepsie Court and released to reappear in court on July 5.
