29 San Bernardino County Residents Arrested in Welfare Fraud Sweep

Last week we conducted another welfare sweep in San Bernardino County. We will hold those who cheat the system accountable for their actions and make sure that welfare funds remain available to those who are truly struggling and legitimately need public assistance.
— District Attorney Mike Ramos

Twenty-nine people were arrested last week on outstanding warrants as part of a week-long welfare fraud sweep conducted in San Bernardino County.

The alleged total of public assistance illegally obtained by the twenty-nine defendants was $245,269.00.
