Editor’s note:  This same thing just happened in Pottstown.  Wondering if this is a more than a coincidence.  Looks like this could be a big problem.

Two Brentwood men who ran separate small grocery stores in the South Hills were indicted Wednesday for wire fraud and food stamp fraud, documents filed today in U.S. District Court show.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture authorized him to begin accepting food stamps in February 2009.

Starting in August 2010, according to the indictment, Mr. Dweh started paying cash for food stamp benefits, paying around 50 cents on each dollar of benefit the customer sought to cash in.

  1. With record number of people on food stamps,48 million at last count,I’m sure a lot of fraud is happening that we haven’t heard about yet.I’m not surprised that a few grocery stores are cashing in on the record number of people using food stamps.
    My question is,how many more people are going on food stamps until this country goes completely broke under this dicator president?
    Someone is paying for all this “free” stuff that these people are getting from Santa Obama.
