Daddy Spanky Uses Multiple EBT Cards EVERY DAY To Buy Food For Wife’s Holyoke Restaurant That They Sell To Customers


WHDHA Massachusetts man is facing criminal charges after state police say he purchased tens of thousands of dollars in food supplies with fraudulently-obtained Electronic Benefits Transfer cards and then used the products in the preparation of meals that were served at a restaurant owned by his wife. Jose A. Baez, 55, of Holyoke, was arrested Wednesday morning following a nearly yearlong investigation into a large-scale fraud scheme, according to Massachusetts State Police.

Surveillance set up by state police units in Holyoke and Springfield allegedly found that Baez was using multiple EBT cards to purchase large quantities of food products on an almost daily basis at 90 Meat Outlet and Sweet Life Foods Company on Avocado Street in Springfield. Police say the investigation determined that after purchasing the food, Baez would take it to a restaurant owned by his wife, El Rincon Boricua Restaurant in Holyoke, where it was allegedly used to prepare meals that were served to customers.

Baez was taken into custody at the restaurant and booked at the state police barracks in Springfield. He is expected to be arraigned in Springfield District Court on charges including electronic fund transfer violation, public assistance fraud, committing a government purchasing violation, money laundering, and larceny over $1,200 by single scheme.

“But food stamp abuse is rare,” they said. “It’s a right wing myth they’re spreading to get you to hate poor people,” they said. “Cutting funding or asking for more oversight for SNAP is inhumane,” they said.

We’ve done a lot of food stamp fraud on this blog, but this one takes the cake. This dumpster nugget didn’t just do this a couple times – he did it EVERY SINGLE DAY. He somehow showed up at a food distributor and used a different person’s EBT card EVERY DAY, and the food distributor gets to walk away free…..why? Did they not notice his name wasn’t on the card? Or did they just not give a shit because it’s money in their pocket regardless?

I don’t know how EBT works exactly, because I have pride and pay for my own shit. But is it really that easy to just use someone else’s card? I feel like this could be resolved a lot easier if we made it at least as hard to use EBT as it is to buy beer. Oh wait, I forgot – it’s racist to assume that people have ID’s to prove who they really are. Excuse me while I check my white privilege.

My mind is about to explode thinking about this. It’s a restaurant that somehow stockpiles EBT cards, uses those cards to purchase their supplies, slashes operating costs, and then profits by selling that food to customers. It’s the government literally subsidizing a privately owned business. Every. Single. Day.

And OF COURSE these welfare wallabies opened their business in Holyoke. God knows Alex Morse isn’t going to bother you there.

On top of that Masslive is giving them free advertising too:

One less thing to pay for. “Raices Restaurant” appears to be a restaurant in Springfield that the owners of this restaurant may or may not own. They might wanna look into that place too, since their son Jose Baez Jr. owns it. There’s pictures of there stuff all over El Rincon’s Facebook page (which for some reason is a personal page, filled with family pictures that you have to friend request, instead of a business page).


They’re living life large on the taxpayer’s dime. They seem to own a boat too.

Must be nice. I wouldn’t know, I don’t collect money from the government for a living.

Someone really needs to tell Daddy Spanky that he’s way too old to be wearing a flat brimmed hat too.

How is the wife not in jail too? She was obviously in it. They keep records right? Did she not notice that there were NO EXPENSES when it comes to buying food? She must’ve thought that the fairy welfare bunny was blessing her shitty, dingy restaurant with unprecedented success and nothing but profits. Then again…..

Looks like that’s their favorite adult memory too.

    Seen the same thing at BJ’s peeps purchasing entire flat carts of soda and candy for bodegas/convenience stores with EBT daily occurrence. Loading it into a pos lettered van in the parking lot.

    EBT cards now work like credit cards. You don’t give them to the cashier your credit card you swipe it.

    Hopefully the US Attorney can do something since cunt Maura Healey is in Texas suing Exxon or something. He is our only hope. Otherwise the MADOR will continue to illegally confiscate money from your kid even though you are in bankruptcy and other shady stuff to pay to support fucking criminal spics and ngers. Why not? This state is run by criminals from Fakah to the actual state police. Abandon all holp ye who enter Massholechusetts,

    He had 18 EBT cards, purchased from other ratchets illegally, and spent upwards of $250,000 on food for the wife’s restaurant. AND THEY LET HIM OUT ON $5,000 BAIL What’s the over/under he runs back to Puerto Rico, or the Dominican where he came from?

    The fraud level of public assistance has to be astronomical. I’d guess 30% + is some gutter slug scamming the system. Has anyone ever gone to jail for this? I’m guessing no.

    Not for nothing but a large swath of our Hispanic friends (legal or otherwise) who might not have been born here have virtual PhD’s in Welfare abuse. Half of them can barely spell their own names correctly under normal circumstances, but when it comes to leeching every possible penny out of the system by any means necessary they display more intelligence than Albert Einstein.

    I know exactly where this little shithole is. Fun Fact: It’s not far away from the “Longest Bridge in America.” You know, the one that connects Puerto Rico to South Hadley, MA.

    It’s an area where every last name ends with a “z” sound. That’s really all that needs to be said.

      Where’s that $ coming from for the memberships? I can’t stand watching the cardholder fumble with there “Obama “ phone, coach/Gucci purse to pull out the membership, EBT card and then the bank card to pay all of the other stuffs they get.

    The cards have pictures, but it doesn’t matter. Stores can’t refuse someone because their face doesn’t match the card. Apparently that would be disenfranchising or something because you could be shopping for a disabled person? So basically there is no oversight whatsoever. RIDICULOUS.
