SCHENECTADY - A Schenectady man illegally received nearly $3,800 in unemployment benefits, state police said.

Jerry Rondon, 50, was charged this past week with one count each of third-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, felonies.

Rondon is accused of receiving a total of $3,795 in unemployment benefits from December 2017 to March 2018 that he wasn't entitled to, state police said. He claimed to the state that he was totally unemployed during those dates, when he had a job, state police said.

Troopers received a complaint from the state Department of Labor in July.
