Haredi Crime Watch?

1. The New York Post reports:

A Brooklyn woman collected more than $170,000 in welfare benefits over a seven-year period, a stretch during which she and her husband owned four buildings, prosecutors charged yesterday.
Orna Baruch, 37, was charged with grand larceny, welfare fraud and filing a false instrument in connection with the food stamps and Medicaid benefits she received between 1999 and last year. She was released on her own recognizance.…

[C]ty records show she and husband Chaim Baruch owned four Brooklyn buildings over the period, in Sheepshead Bay, Marine Park and Mill Basin.

Six-figure mortgages on two of the properties, including the Mill Basin mansion the couple currently inhabits, were entirely paid off, the records indicated.

2. The AP, via the New York Post, reports:

The state has settled a 2002 lawsuit charging a Brooklyn adult home’s former operators with forcing its residents to live in deplorable conditions.

Martin Rosenberg and Baruch Mappa are barred from owning or operating a licensed adult-care facility or any residential facility or program for the mentally disabled.

In addition, Elizabeth Rosenberg, ex-administrator of the 346-bed Canarsie home, Seaport Manor, is barred from operating or serving as an administrator, consultant or employee of an adult-care facility, the officials said.

How many of these criminals are Orthodox? Haredi? I don’t know. Do you?
