A former Tulsa grocery store owner pleaded guilty to stealing about $283,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps.

Milton Islam, 47, of Broken Arrow said he stole from SNAP between 2011 and 2014, while he was owner of Apache Food Mart, according to U.S. Attorney Danny Williams Sr.

The amount stolen equals SNAP’s maximum annual allotment for 436 families of four.

Islam faces up to 10 years in prison and a $566,000 fine.

A word of advice to whichever prison he might end up in: It’s probably best if you don’t let him work in the cafeteria.
