Landmark WIC fraud indictment nets over 40 area residents

A federal indictment, unsealed in Savannah today, has charged 54 defendants for their alleged roles in a massive fraud upon the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and Food Stamp programs.

The indictment represents one of the largest federal food program frauds ever prosecuted, which fraud allegedly involved the purchase of over $18 million in WIC vouchers and Food Stamp benefits for cash through a number of purported grocery stores set up throughout Georgia.
