Intense Debate: 3 People Were Arrested by The Sullivan Welfare Fraud Task Force!

The diligent efforts of the Sullivan County Welfare Fraud Task Force have resulted in the arrest of three individuals suspected of engaging in fraudulent activities related to welfare benefits.

Kirk G. Meredith, a 46-year-old resident of Liberty, is facing charges of felony offering a false instrument for filing. Investigators allege that Meredith failed to report income earned through self-employment in a bid to obtain government assistance unlawfully.

This failure to disclose crucial financial information led to Meredith receiving $625 in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to which he was not entitled. Following his arrest, Meredith was prosecuted and subsequently released on his recognizance pending further legal proceedings scheduled to take place at the Town of Liberty Court.

In a separate case, Muhammad W. Khan, a 29-year-old from Campbell Hall, has been charged with grand theft and healthcare fraud. Khan, who owns and operates MAK Limo Inc., stands accused of billing Medicaid for medical transportation services purportedly provided to a client requiring trips between Monticello and a treatment facility in Peekskill.

However, investigations revealed that from September 16, 2022, to February 15, 2023, the individual Khan was billing for was, in fact, incarcerated in the Sullivan County Jail. Consequently, the transportation services billed for were never rendered, yet Medicaid funds were unlawfully obtained.
