Woman on disability caught jogging

Italian authorities said a woman who collected a state disability pension by claiming she was a complete invalid was caught jogging with her dog.

Police in the city of Monteforte Irpino said the 62-year-old woman was being monitored by police for some time before her arrest July 29. She had been repeatedly seen jogging with her dog and tilling land on her farm, ANSA reported Wednesday.

The woman, who had received a state disability pension as well as state support for a personal caregiver, was charged with fraud.
