Seattle police and federal law enforcement officials conducted a raid Wednesday in the International District as part of their effort to combat food stamp fraud.

Officers went to Minh Tam's Market. A source told KING 5 that the Vietnamese market paid cash for food stamps offered by undercover agents.

Minh Tam's is located at 12th and Jackson -- the same part of Seattle where the KING 5 Investigators repeatedly found businesses engaged in food stamp fraud two years ago, as documented in the "Their Crime, Your Dime" series..

KING 5 was unable to get a comment from the market's owner.
