A Detroit market and three people have been charged in a scheme to milk the food-stamp program.
Attorney General Bill Schuette says informants were sent into Randy's Market after authorities noticed unusually high food-stamp redemptions. The store is accused of giving cash to people in exchange for more valuable swipes of their electronic card.
Schuette says fraud exceeded $100,000 over a one-year period. A man who answered the phone Tuesday at Randy's Market said he didn't know anything about the case.
The attorney general's office says monthly food-stamp redemptions at Randy's were more than 300 percent higher than similar stores in the area.
