DALLAS (AP) – A Dallas convenience store owner and manager are charged in a $1.9 million food stamp scheme.

Federal officials say store owner Kamardeen Ogunleye and manager Robert Gordon are each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud, five counts of food stamp fraud and aiding and abetting, and six counts of wire fraud. Ogunleye is also charged with two counts of structuring financial transactions.

The indictment unsealed Friday says they purchased food stamp benefits from recipients in exchange for cash at an about 50 percent exchange rate. The amount of the redeemed benefits was then deposited into Ogunleye’s accounts.

Both are released on bond. A person answering Ogunleye’s phone who declined to be identified said there was no comment. Gordon’s attorney did not immediately return a message.
