Lexington Police accuse three people of welfare fraud.

Police say the three were buying food stamp debit cards from people for half of the cards' value.

Investigators say one of the three suspects would then use the cards to buy things to turn around and sell in his own store.

Police say the people who sold their cards will also be charged.

Police say they started investigating this kind of welfare fraud late last year, and are looking to arrest more people.
