WELCH, W.Va. (AP) - A man running for sheriff in McDowell County has been charged with using a Social Security debit card and a state benefits debit card belonging to another person.

A report from the McDowell County Sheriff’s Department said 61-year-old Quinton L. Dawson of Jolo was arrested Friday and charged with fraudulent use of access device, obtaining money under false pretenses and felony conspiracy.

While deputies were investigating fraudulent use of benefits debit cards, Dawson allegedly entered a convenience store and used the two cards, taking a total of $700. The Bluefield Daily Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1S4jPOk ) reports Dawson was allegedly in possession of 13 other debit cards belonging to other people.

McDowell County clerk’s office records show Dawson is a candidate for sheriff. He was arraigned before Magistrate Steve L. Cox.
