A grocery store employee pleaded guilty Friday to carrying out food stamp fraud over an 18-month period.

Tallat Mahmood, 64, of Waterbury worked at WB Trade Fair Grocery on Willow Street, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. He and others allowed customers to redeem their food stamps for cash and for ineligible items, the attorney’s office said.

Given the stock of eligible items at the store, it’s estimated WB Trade Fair Grocery could lawfully redeem up to $240,000 a year in food stamp benefits, the U.S. Attorney’s office said. Instead, it redeemed a total of $3.2 million between November 2014 and June 2016.

Mahmood pleaded guilty in federal court in Hartford to unlawful use of food stamp benefits and conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud.

He was released on a $50,000 bail. Sentencing is scheduled for July 12, when he faces a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to twice the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program’s loss, and restitution.


What were they selling to the infidels? Butts, bongs and hookahs

Federal officials say a Waterbury food store has a lucrative business in food stamp fraud and illegally trafficking in food stamp benefits. Three workers at the Willow Street store allowed customers redeem their food stamp benefits for cash and other ineligible items, including cigarettes, glass pipes, bongs and hookahs. The store operators often charged a premium for these illegal transactions.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah A. L. Merriam in New Haven ordered Mahmood and [Tahir] Shahzad to surrender there passports and [Raul Carlos] Monarca was detained.


Who owns the halal-meat selling store and how didn’t the owner know what was going on?
