(GARY) - A Gary convenience store owner has been indicted in an alleged food stamp fraud scheme.

The 24-count federal indictment alleges that 52-year-old Mark Prusinski of Wheatfield paid customers at Mark's Food Mart about 65 percent of the face value of their food benefit debit cards issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, then redeemed the cards himself at full face value.
