NJ Man Gets 3 Years for $3.2 Million Food Stamp Fraud

A New Jersey man and former Connecticut supermarket employee has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for his role in a $3.2 million food stamp fraud scheme.

Authorities say Shahbaz was involved in a food stamp fraud scheme with his colleagues at W.B.

Officials say Shahbaz and other employees allowed food stamp recipients to buy items not allowed under the food stamp program for a fee, such as tobacco or alcohol.

Shahbaz is the second New Jersey man to be sentenced for food stamp fraud in recent months.

In November, a Newark, New Jersey, man was sentenced to 37 months in prison for running a $750,000 food stamp fraud benefit scheme.
