Waltham store manager indicted on EBT card fraud charges

Hassan Mounajed, 30, of Fall River was indicted Thursday on charges of fraudulent use of EBT/SNAP cards in the Waltham convenience store he managed, the attorney general’s office said. Mounajed is facing charges that include procurement fraud, larceny by false pretenses, and access device fraud over $100.
