Arlington, VA – just outside the nation’s capital, in the hub of “Northern Virginia,” as it’s referred to by suburbanites, Helen Agbapuruonwu has been charged with a felony.
Police say that Helen, who is a mother of four (what a great example she’s setting), collected food stamps and Medicaid benefits for 6 whole years, despite the fact that her husband was earning $1.5 million as a lawyer in Washington, D.C.
NBC Washington reports:
“Police say a six-month investigation into Helen Agbapuruonwu, 41, found that the mother of four had collected benefits like food stamps and Medicaid assistance for the past six years.”
“While Helen was collecting benefits, her husband, Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, was earning $1.5 million per year as a lawyer, according to court documents obtained by News 4.”
Thankfully, the police have done their job and are acting swiftly.
According to a Police Report (from Arlington Now), she was arrested and is being charged with Felony Welfare Fraud and Document Forgery:
“FELONY WELFARE FRAUD, 2016-10040029, 2100 block of Washington Boulevard. Between April 1, 2010 and August 1, 2016 the subject allegedly fraudulently obtained public assistance in excess of $100,000 under false pretenses. Helen Agbapuruonwu, 38, of Arlington VA was arrested and charged with felony welfare fraud and document forgery.”
The husband, however, is nowhere to be found. Sources claim he’s fled to his home of Nigeria, but one thing’s for certain: our law enforcement agencies have taken one more welfare mooching bum off the streets.
