The Madison County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Canastota man on charges related to Welfare Fraud.

According to officials, 34-year-old Zachary Bazan allegedly filed documentation with the Madison County Department of Social Services which failed to report income that he was receiving from employment.

As a result of the false information Bazan received over $800 between November 2017 and March 2018. He also received over $1,600 between March 2018 and November 2018.

Authorities say, Bazan would not have received those funds had he provided social services with accurate information.
