RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man is accused of stealing more than $376,000 in Social Security funds by misrepresenting the level of his disability and outside income.

The Social Security Administration alleges that 56-year-old Terry Henrikson fraudulently obtained benefits over a period of 24 years.

Henrikson, a paraplegic, is charged in federal court with theft of government property, making false statements and concealing events affecting benefits. He’s been released on a personal recognizance bond.

Henrikson declined comment to The Associated Press on Wednesday.
