WACO -- Five more people have been arrested in connection with a food stamp scam.
58-year-old Deckard Alexander, 36-year-old Conswalla Cortez, 50-year-old Arthur Brooks, 39-year-old Lula Finley and 22-year-old Kimberly Evans were arrested on charges of unlawful use of food stamp benefits.
The arrests come nearly a week after 21 people were listed under indictments related to the widespread investigation of improper use of food stamps.
Officials say the arrests stem from the investigation of Swift P's Pizzeria where the owner was charged with keeping a gambling place.
