LAKE GEORGE - A woman is accused of collecting more than $1,800 in medical benefits that she wasn’t entitled to.

Police say 31-year-old Amy Johnson moved to Massachusetts back in January, but didn’t report it.

That meant she continued to collect and use Medicaid benefits from the Warren County Department of Social Services.

Johnson was charged with grand larceny and health care fraud.

She was issued an appearance ticket.
