POLICE BEAT: Expensive handbag and EBT card?

The article in Sunday’s News Tribune regarding the stolen Coach handbag begs a question: Why was the victim of this $1,150 loss carrying an EBT card as well as a state DSHS card? If she qualifies for both cards, how can she afford this expensive handbag (along with $400 in cash and an unspecified number of prepaid gift cards and credit cards)?

This appears to be another example of how poorly our state oversees the state welfare program.
