HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Investigators from the Harrison County Sheriff's Department and Mississippi Department of Human Services spent the early part of Friday conducting a fraud raid. State investigators from the DHS fraud unit say they're serving warrants to as many as 6 people suspected of SNAP fraud.

According to those investigators, SNAP and TANF fraud are usually the result of a client withholding income of household information that could deem them ineligible to receive benefits.
