A Bon Aqua man was arrested in Ohio last week on Tennessee charges of illegally purchasing food stamp cards and using them to buy supplies for the Dickson restaurant where he worked. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says 36-year-old James Cooper was indicted April 24 by the Dickson County grand jury on five counts of food stamp fraud. He was arrested Thursday night in Brunswick, Ohio, on an unrelated 2004 probation violation in Cuyahoga County. A TBI statement says Cooper was participating in the 23rd Judicial District Drug Court when he bought EBT cards from five other program participants between January and July 2012. The statement says he bought them for 50 cents on the dollar and even sometimes paid full value for the cards, then used them to purchase large quantities of items to supply Farmers Restaurant in Dickson where he worked. The indictments do not allege that any former or current owners or management of the restaurant were aware of the scheme. Cooper is being held in Ohio and faces extradition to Tennessee to face the charges.
