CANTON — Kristi L. Mason, 36, of 222 Spencer St., Gouverneur, was charged by St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies with fifth-degree welfare fraud Friday.

Deputies said an investigation by the St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services found that Ms. Mason allegedly submitted a food stamp recertification form to the department that contained false information.

Deputies said that from Feb. 1, 2012, to March 31, 2012, Ms. Mason received $410 in food stamp benefits to which she wasn’t entitled.

She is scheduled to appear in Town Court.
