JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
Investigators from the Mississippi Department of Human Services helped bust more than a dozen people for SNAP and TANF fraud.
More than $159,000 will be repaid to taxpayers in restitution and fines.
Officials say this type of fraud is usually the result of a client withholding income or household information that would make them ineligible for benefits.
If you suspect someone is misusing SNAP benefits, called the fraud hotline at 1-800-299-6905.
