Minn. St. Pauls — Authorities have arrested the couple charged with taking welfare while living a life of apparent luxury.
Andrea Chisholm, 54, and Colin Chisholm III, 62, were deported from the Bahamas Monday and arrested when they landed near Fort Lauderdale that night, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office said.
The two were charged with taking more than $167,000 in state welfare benefits despite buying an 83-foot yacht for $1.2 million, having nearly $3 million in the bank and living in a luxurious lakefront home in Deephaven.
Colin Chisholm is listed as CEO and founder of Miami-based TCN Inc. Calls to that company and Andrea Chisholm’s cell phone were not returned.
The Chisholms’ son and dog were also with them, and are now with family members. The two adults are being held at the Broward County Jail.
Prosecutors intend to extradite the couple back to Minneapolis for trial. The Chisholms may fight that effort starting at a Wednesday hearing.
Wrongfully obtaining public assistance over $35,000 is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.
