WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Police called it "Operation Easy Money", and Thursday night, dozens are in jail charged with food stamp fraud.

They're accused of ripping off you -- the taxpayers. At last report, 62 people are accused in this sweep.

All are welfare recipients. Police say the suspects worked with store owners in Belle Glade illegally obtaining cash for using electronic benefit cards.

This is the result of an 18-month long investigation.
