David L. Stoker is being held in the Ada County Jail on a felony charge of unauthorized use of federal food stamps after Boise police say he was using an Idaho Quest card that did not belong to him to buy food.
Idaho code says that if someone is caught using food stamps that arent theirs to purchase items over $150 they will be charged with a felony, which is punishable by up to five years in prison.
Boise police reports did not list the amount of money Stoker is accused of defrauding the food stamp program of but do say he used it on more than one occasion . It would have had to be in excess of $150 for the felony charge to apply.
Boise police found the Idaho Quest card inside a home in the 9900 block of West Rosecroft Court, which is located in the Fairview Avenue/Five Mile Road neighborhood, just after 6:30 a.m. Wednesday while helping Idaho Probation and Parole officers search Stokers residence.
Stoker is also charged with a felony parole violation in connection with convictions from Minidoka and Cassia on eluding a police officer charges.
Stoker will make his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.
