Some Harrison County residents woke up to a surprise, and unwanted, visit Friday morning, as sheriff’s deputies and DHS officers arrested 6 people in Harrison County: five accused of SNAP fraud and one charged with frauding the state’s TANF, or Temporary Assistance For Needy Families program.

Investigators tell News 25 some of these arrests stem from the suspects lying on their applications for assistance.

Director of Fraud Investigators Ken Palmer said, “If they put on that application what they should do, and tell at the interview when they ask the questions at the interview, then they wouldn’t receive these benefits to start with.”
