Fraud
probe
results in
9 warrants

By MAUREEN FLEMING
Washtenaw County Prosecuting
Attorney William Delhey yesterday an-
nounced the end of his three-part
welfare fraud investigation. He said the
"Phase III" part of his investigation
resulted in nine feloncy arrests.
Of those nine cases, Delhey said, four
arrests were ordered for unreported
employment income, three for Aid to
Dependent Children fraud, and two for
failure to report workmen's compen-
sation. The total amount of restitution
that could be ordered by the courts may
amount to $52,531, he added.
THE PROSECUTOR'S Office, the

State Inspector General's Office, and
the Washtenaw County Department of
Social Services have been investigating
welfare fraud for the past year, Delhey
said.
He added that he would not release
the names of the alleged cheaters until
all arrests were made.
The first welfare fraud arrests
(Phase I) were announced Jan. 16. The
second part (Phase II) of the in-
vestigation began Feb. 12, Delhey said.
THE TOTAL RESTITUTION from
the three phases of the investigation is
expected to amount to over $156,000,
Delhey said. He added that $88,584 ws
ordered to be paid back from Phase I
and Phase II.
Kenneth Oettle, director of the
Washtenaw County department of

social services, said caseworkers and
the general public are the two main
sources for clues to welfare fraud. He
added that in this project the depar-
tment specifically looked for cheaters
in food stamp, Medicaid, and general
assistance fraud.
"Word gets out," Oettle said. He ex-
plained that although the number of
convictions for fraud weren't par-
ticularly high compared to the amount
of persons in the welfare system, people
heard about the convictions by word-of-
mouth and were less willing to cheat.
For example, he said, after the
results from Phase II were made
public, the average number of persons
who asked that their cases be closed on
ADC went from 22 percent to 35 per-
cent.

Police

Pinball victim loses w'atch
A man walked into Focu~s Pinball
Wednesday night and allegedly stole a
wristwatch from a pinball player's
arm, police Sgt. Harold Tinsey said
yesterday. The victim, unwilling to
have his watch stolen, fought off the
robber and was punched several times,
knocked down, and kicked in the face,
police said. Tinsey said witnesses
reported the suspect came in the ar-
cade and asked for a cigarette before"
taking the watch. There are no suspects
in the case.
Firefighter injured
A firefighter was injured Wednesday
while checking on a report that an in-
fant was left on the second floor of a
burning house. Nathan Gehman, 28, a
six-year Ann Arbor Fire Department
veteran, was suffering from smoke
inhalation and burns on his ears,
Assistant Fire Chief Darrell Trotter
said yesterday.
Trotter said neighbors reported the
fire at 703 N. Maple Rd. around 7:30
n.m. Wednesday, and said an infant may-
have been left upstairs. A fire unit
arrived a few minutes later, Trotter
said, and Gehman was sent to in-
vestigate. He was overcome by smoke
and was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital
where he was treated and released.
Vertie Kelly and her children, the
regidents of the house; were unharmed,
Trotter said. But the house didn't fare
as well. One room on the second floor
was gutted and the entire second floor
was damaged by heat and smoke, Trot-
ter said. He added that the first floor
was damaged from smoke and water.
The cause of the fire is still unknown
and under investigation.
Student discourages
attacker
A University student was accosted
last night on her way home from an Ann
Arbor store. She said she noticed a man
in a gray jogging suit run by her on the
way to the store. After leaving the store
she said, he started following her. She
explained that since she was on crut-
ches she was used to people being help-
ful and didn't think anything of it until
they got to an open area.
"The guy kept walking closer," she
said. "Suddenly he grabbed me by the
shoulder and started saying obscene
things to me.
"I took my crutch and hit him in the
groin with it," she said. At first she was
upset, the victim said, but she changed
her mind after thinking that she, on
crutches, got the better of him. "The
guy thought I was easy prey so I started
laughing after I realized what I had
done to him," she explained.
"When I got home the screw dropped
out of my crutch, so I must have caught
the screw in his groin-and I was quite
proud of it," she added.
Police say the case is still under in-
vestigation.
Stockwell burglarized
A prowler broke into Stockwell

Dormitory Wednesday night and spilled
two or three cans of paint, Building
Director Ruth Addis said yesterday.
She explained that the suspect crawled
into the dormitory through a basement
window and spilled paint in the paint
storage room.
rhe paint didn't seem to be spilled
aidentally, Addis said. Police said a
stained-glass window was also stolen in
the incident and was found later.
The case is still under investigation.
Escapee hearing
postponed
The pre-trial examination for Ber-
tram Eubank, who allegedly raped a 13-
year-old Lodi Township girl last
Friday, was postponed until Thursday,
Oct. 29, a Fourteenth District Court
spokesperson said yesterday.
Eubank, 24, a two-time prison
escapee, was captured last Saturday
after a two-day crime spree. A
Washtenaw County deputy sheriff said
that during his rampage he stole five
automobiles, kidnapped three per-
sons-including a Howard County, Ind.
deputy sheriff-and raped a 13-year-old
girl.
He was charged last Saturday with
first degree criminal sexual assault and
kidnapping. He had beeip serving a 160-
year prison term for a number of
crimes including criminal sexual
assault, armed robbery, and kidnap-
ping, police said, and has been in jail
since he was 17 years old.
