Feds charge a sixth person in federal food program fraud

Posted By on Tue, Aug 11, 2015 at 10:59 AM

The U.S. attorney's office in Little Rock has announced the indictment of a sixth person charged with defrauding a federally financed feeding program for children.

Reuben Nims, 51, of Little Rock, was named in a 10-count indictment. He operated an after-school feeding program called Blessed Thru Success. A government news release said Nims got approved for the program by a relative who worked at the Department of Human Services and got paid $182,000 for fictitious meals. The news release said no children were fed.

U.S. Attorney Chris Thyer said he anticipated more indictments.
