Waterloo man claimed $10K in workers’ comp benefits while working other jobs

Jan 17, 2020 | ,

A Waterloo truck driver is accused of stealing upwards of $10,000 in workers compensation benefits following an investigation involving the New York State Inspector General’s Office.

Joshua Hernandes was charged with grand larceny; and last month had been charged with offering a false instrument for filing, grand larceny, and welfare fraud, as well, in a related investigation.

He had been arraigned on those charges last month in Waterloo Town Court.

The Inspector General’s Office says Hernandes applied for benefits after claiming a work-related injury in 2019. He then started working for a rideshare company, and was mowing lawns for pay without alerting any of the state agencies involved in his workers compensation case.
