Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz confirmed on Friday that two search warrants were served at the Dairy Mart on Pine Street in Zanesville and at a residence in Roseville in connection to food stamp fraud.

Sheriff Lutz explained, "That was a joint investigation. Obviously of our drug unit in the city were the ones heading that up and working with some state officials on that investigation with food stamp fraud. So we’re putting that together as we speak."

Lutz says the owner of the Dairy Mart is, "a person of interest," and says the investigation is still in the early stages. No other information was released.
