A Nunda woman held a benefit for a cancer victim last November only to pocket the money for herself, according to the Nunda Police Department.

According to the Nunda Police Department, 32-year-old Patty Wilkins was arrested after an investigation into a scheme to defraud. Wilkins took in a few hundred dollars from the benefit while promising prizes to various winners, but never paid out any of the prizes, instead keeping the money in her account.
