OLEAN, NY – An Olean man was arrested Tuesday and charged with two felonies -- third-degree grand larceny and third-degree welfare fraud. 

Police said they investigated David J. Fischer, 36, after receiving a complaint from the Cattaraugus County Department of Social Services for suspected welfare fraud.

Police said their investigation led them to believe that Fischer had received $3,027 in food stamps by concealing and failing to report income.
