DOVER, N.H. — A Maine couple has been indicted by a grand jury in New Hampshire on charges relating to Social Security and welfare fraud.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports Robert and Nina DeAngelis of Berwick are accused of falsely reporting job statuses and incomes.

Thirty-four-year-old Robert DeAngelis is facing a theft by deception charge. The indictment says DeAngelis reported he wasn’t working and was receiving no income from September 2010 to May 2013. It says he actually was working and receiving income from Down and Dirty Cleaning Services. He’s also facing a welfare fraud charge.

Thirty-three-year-old Nina DeAngelis is facing two welfare fraud charges, for allegedly falsely reporting that she was unemployed and in turn receiving more than $1,000 in government assistance and for misreporting income.

Arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 26.
