An Amsterdam woman is facing fraud charges.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office arrested 37-year-old Tiffany Rourke last week for allegedly filing a SNAP application with the Montgomery County Department of Social Services and failing to disclose all members residing in the household, plus the amount of income earned.

Rourke is charged with offering a false instrument for filing and welfare fraud.

She was released on an appearance ticket and is expected back in court at a later date.
