“Welfare Fraud At Its Worst”

(KARE) Felony charges were filed Friday against a sometime Minnesota couple for an egregious case of alleged welfare fraud.

The accused are Colin Chisholm III, 62, and Andrea Chisholm, 54.

The couple is charged with bilking Minnesota public assistance programs for more than $165,000 between January 2005 and March 2012.

When the Chisholms first applied for welfare, according to Hennin County Attorney Michael Freeman, they claimed to be living at 3202 Harriet Avenue South in Minneapolis.

Actually, they were living on a $1.4 million yacht in Florida.
