The police of North Carolina, USA, arrested a married couple, who conducted illegal activities within the scope of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The couple collected over $100,000 by buying food stamp credits for 50 cents on the dollar. The detainees - Luz Adriana Walker and David Christopher Walker, 55, are the owners of a meat shop in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The couple would give undercover Guilford County Sheriff's deputies $200 for $400 worth of electronic food stamp benefits transfers. The couple would then take reimbursements for the full value of the stamps, also called SNAP Benefits. From Jan. 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2014, the Walkers thus collected more than $100,000.

On March 27 of this year, the couple was arrested. The Walkers are accused of obtaining property under false pretenses, fraudulently buying and selling food stamps, accessing government computers for fraud, and two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony.
