Woman accused of welfare fraud caught in Tennessee after fleeing Alabama
MONTGOMERY (AP) — A woman who fled the state before she could be arrested for stealing $22,730 in welfare benefits has been arrested and brought back to Alabama, Attorney General Troy King announced Monday.
Annette D. Millwood — who has also gone by Annette Daniels, Annette Amato and Annette Dinardo — was arrested in Knoxville, on a fugitive warrant, King's office said in a statement.
Millwood, 42, waived extradition and was taken on July 23 to the Elmore County Jail, where she remains. She is a former resident of Tallassee.
"This case should serve as a stern reminder that fugitives will be pursued and justice will be delivered for the citizens of Alabama," King said in the statement.
Millwood was indicted on July 20, 2005 on charges of stealing $22,730 in food stamp benefits by misrepresenting her household income or household composition to the Alabama Department of Human Resources.
