Mount Pleasant police say a clerk at the Baja Supermarket on Mead Street is facing multiple felonies for defrauding the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program.

Officers took the man into custody Thursday at the store, 2145 Mead Street, after a joint investigation with the state Department of Health Services Office of the Inspector General. Inspectors said the man exchanged money and other unapproved items for WIC benefits.

WIC is a program for mothers and pregnant women to buy formula and healthy food for their kids.

Members of the state Department of Revenue Office of Criminal Investigation Alcohol & Tobacco Enforcement were also involved in the investigation.
