Colin and Andrea Chisholm.

A couple on the run might call each other “Lord” and “Lady,” but the welfare scam police say they pulled was anything but noble.

‘A Minnesota couple on the run accused of collecting thousands of dollars in public assistance to fuel a lavish lifestyle that includes a mansion and a $1 million yacht. This morning, the self-proclaimed royals are on the run with their 7-year-old son.’

According to Daily Mail, police accuse 62-year-old Colin Chisholm and 54-year-old Andrea Chisholm of receiving more than $165,000 from Minnesota public assistance programs between January 2005 and March 2012 even though the couple had roughly $3 million in secret bank accounts.
