Welfare Recipient Buys $1.1 Million Home


A Scotts Valley man who has received welfare benefits for more than a decade in both Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties purchased a $1.1 million home, and is now under investigation for welfare fraud.


“Deputies noted that their investigation had also determined the suspect was selling cannabis through online delivery services,” Sacramento’s KCRA News reported March 18.


The total amount defrauded from various welfare programs is still under investigation.
