FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two Fargo men have been sentenced for operating a scheme at a neighborhood grocery store in which government food stamp benefits were illegally turned into cash.

U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers says 48-year-old Lamia Ali and 51-year-old Abass Amedi were ordered to serve unspecified periods of home confinement, perform community service and repay more than $365,000.

Authorities say Ali and Amedi operated the scheme at the Noor Al Huda store between March 2011 and March 2013.
