According to investigators,  26 year-old  Audrea Gause, filed a false claim and collected nearly half a million dollars from a national Boston Marathon bombing relief fund.

Gause collected the check, opened a bank account on July 1, 2013 and withdrew $377,500 on July 15, 2013.

She was arrested Friday, and charged with larceny over $250 and felony defrauding a nationally recognized victim relief fund.
