— State health officials charged a Wake County woman wrongly collected more than $17,000 in food stamp and Medicaid benefits from 2009 to 2011 because she did not tell Wake County officials that two children she had cared for had moved to Texas.

Stacy Wilson Nabors, 36, who arrest records say lives at 112 Young Wood Road in Fuquay-Varina, was charged Wednesday with one count each of Medicaid assistance fraud and food stamp fraud.

Arrest warrants, which listed her name as Stacy Lenora Wilson and said she lived at 904 S. Blount St. in Raleigh, alleged that the Medicaid money was collected from Aug. 1, 2009, through June 30, 2011, and the food stamps from Sept. 1, 2009, through June 30, 2011.

The state said the Medicaid support totaled $10,736.22 and the food support totaled $6,617.00.

Nabors was freed on $10,000 bail.
