    It happens all the time.

    My understanding is that the store rings purchases up as food, gives alcohol/cigs and adjusts inventory internally. For example, someone comes in and pays cash for food, that cash is accredited to alcohol and the books balance.

    I'm pretty sure the police department would be happy to send someone in with an EBT card and confirm for themselves.

    Without the authorities being aware of who both parties are? I doubt that.

    Oh, that makes sense, so it would be hard to even get the store busted unless there was some other kind of evidence I guess.

    If they have the time and resources for that? Sure, why not.

    Re: Should I turn in my brother for food stamp fraud?

    I wonder why the SNAP program is going up so high in costs? (rhetorical). I would be highly pissed at the store - not that anyone will DO anything about selling booze and smokes..

    business as usual, soak the taxpayer, reward the criminal behavior, and add more to the budget costs.

    a good smacking upside the head(s) as someone said here is in order also.

    My brother lived in my grandmother's house after she went to 'the Home'. He never paid the bills, did a lot of drinking and a few drugs. Power turned off, my wife and I lost the half beef in the freezer. I calmly asked him about it, noticed the smoked stained walls and crappy remelt candles and then just beat his ass. Not a real beat down, he is my brother, but until he couldn't stand. I then drug him outside, told him he needed to find a new place to live.

    Time to nut-up, family is family.
    I am an old soldier. Not a thug! My brother has not harmed me in a way that I would respond with violence. Our sister just died and I was their for the funeral for crying out loud. Yes I am conservative and I believe the store and my brother and sons are commiting fraud. We paid for his food stamps with our taxes and it pisses me off what he is doing. But I also have compassion for him and his family. BTW, did you spend any time in jail for assulting your brother? I'm pretty sure beating someone till they can't get up is a serious crime even in backwards ass Oklahoma.

    I've heard several instances of them doing that around here and busting small local stores.

    But I agree. To a point. Know what'll help? Making it harder for them to get booze and smokes.
    I don't really know how helpful that is. In my experience, I've seen that people just find ways around it to get what they want. Where there's a will, there's a way, as they say.
