NESHOBA CO., Miss. (WLBT) - A Neshoba County resident was indicted following a SNAP fraud investigation conducted by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

April Long is said to have received $46,270 in benefits, which were awarded to her after she inaccurately reported her household income to the agency.

A Neshoba County grand jury indicted Long on April 25 and she was taken into custody on May 1.

“This is a great example of collaboration between our investigations team, county office, and local law enforcement,” MDHS Inspector General Sandra Griffith said in a statement.

The investigation was conducted by the agency’s Investigations Division, which falls under the MDHS Office of the Inspector General.
