ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Hundreds of people showed up at a North St. Louis Church thinking they were getting $500 in food vouchers, but instead got nothing but a long wait in line before police finally shut down the operation.

They had gathered at St. Louis Powerhouse Church because a worker at the church told them he’d contracted with a company that offered the food vouchers in exchange for applications for debit cards.

It turns out, those who thought they were getting a $500 voucher, had to put up $500 of their own money.

Police shut down the operation saying it had no permit.
