ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) - Police accused a St. Louis County man of illegally receiving food stamps through deceit for nearly two years.

Court documents said Antonio T. Morris, 46, served time in 2003 for a drug offense committed in 2002. When he applied for food stamps in 2009, he lied about not having a drug conviction, which would have made him ineligible. Officials records said on every renewal thereafter, up through 2014, he lied and said he had not been convicted of a felony related to controlled substances.

Morris received more than $500 worth of food stamps and public assistance benefits in St. Louis County between February 25, 2013 and January 1, 2015. 

The charge of stealing over $500 by deceit is a Class C felony.
