FLINT, MI – Three people have been indicted on federal charges after authorities claim they operated a food stamp fraud scheme that stole more than $5 million of taxpayer's money.
A seven count indictment was unsealed Tuesday, April 26, in Flint U.S. District Court against three people who allegedly ran the fraud out of Shorthorn Meats, a grocery store at 2002 W. Pierson Road, and a nearby car wash.
Only one person, Arthur Armstrong, has been arraigned so far on the indictment, which includes fraud, conspiracy and firearm charges. There is no attorney on file for Armstrong.
The names of the other two suspects are being withheld pending arraignment.
