Food stamp fraud cases would be hard to make against those who overspent benefit limits during a computer crash last October, state Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said Friday.

“There’s no evidence available as to who cashed the checks, who presented the (food stamp) card,” Caldwell said. “Prosecutors are going to have a lot of trouble in taking the cases.”

Caldwell also said there were no victim complaints or arrests which complicates the situation.

Jeff Landry for Attorney General.

    Bull….What happened to the security cameras and tapes?

    Getting the evidence should piece of cake. Match the photos to the purchases or person. Lots of work YES….but worth it.

    Make a statement…..this behavior will not be accepted without a fight from the tax payers.
