21st September 2013
Ink Addiction Tattooz in Raleigh, N.C. allowed customers to use or sell their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards, also known as food stamps, for payment. Owner Clifford Tittle was arrested on September 12.
Raleigh police learned about this in early 2013. An informant used two EBT cards and then sold Tittle two more EBT cards. The US Department of Agriculture found EBT cards were used four other times.
