Sabine Parish, La - Sheriff Aaron Mitchell reports several residents in Sabine Parish have had their SNAP benefits compromised according to the Louisiana Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS).

At this time, it appears the benefits of some local victims were used at grocery stores in the State of Texas.

The Many Police Department has also received complaints of victim benefits being used in Texas.

Sabine Parish Sheriff Detectives are investigating these cases and obtaining evidence.

Sheriff Mitchell urges citizens who receive SNAP benefits to check your balance. If you notice benefits missing that you did not authorize, please report it to DCFS and your local law enforcement agency.

Please keep your SNAP benefit information confidential, and do not give your card number or PIN to anyone.
