CAPITAL REGION -- Four men have been charged over the past week with illegally receiving unemployment benefits in separate cases, state police said.

Each faces one count of third-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, all felonies. They are accused of taking money and making false statements to the state Department of Labor, troopers said.

Those arrested, and the amounts they are accused of stealing, are as follows, according to troopers:

Frederick W. Kennedy Jr., 45, of Schoharie, is accused of receiving $7,800 in unemployment benefits to which he wasn't entitled.
