Phoenix store employees accused of food-stamp fraud

PHOENIX — Authorities said four employees of a general store in Phoenix are
accused of food-stamp fraud.

A report released Wednesday by the Arizona Department of Economic Security and
state Attorney General Tom Horne said people with food cards allegedly were
allowed to buy a small item and overcharge the stamp card in order to make a
profit.

They said tens of thousands of dollars were claimed by the Dollar Dayz store
that only had two aisles of food.

Authorities estimated that the food-stamp fraud exceeded $700,000 at the store
since 2010.

They said the four store employees are accused of illegally conducting an
enterprise, fraudulent schemes and artifices, money laundering, unlawful use of
food stamps and computer tampering.

The names of the four suspects weren’t immediately released.
