WILLIAMSPORT -- A Lycoming County woman is facing multiple charges after attempting to sell her SNAP benefits on a Facebook page, according to state investigators.
The Office of the Inspector General has charged Tanya Keenan-Mack, 37, of Williamsport with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) trafficking and access device fraud after she made a post to social media attempting to sell her benefits in exchange for drugs.

That social media post was shared hundreds of times.
