(Scroll down for video) A couple was arrested after they stuffed pieces of a razor blade into doughnuts they were eating and gave it to a coworker
According to police, the couple ate the razor blade filled doughnuts and shared some with a coworker as well, in attempt to sue the store and/or the doughnut company.
Carol Leazer-Hardman, 39, and Condor Michael, 35, from Utah were jailed after their scheme was uncovered. The couple ate the contaminated razor doughnuts in an attempt to file a fraudulent lawsuit to help them with their mounting bills.
The couple inserted the razor blades into the doughnuts and shared it with an unsuspecting coworker, who suffered cuts in the mouth.
The couple contacted police to file a complaint about the contaminated donuts. The Smith’s Food and Drug store chain immediately pulled the doughnuts from the shelves while the case was under investigation.
Hospital X-ray revealed that Leazer-Hardman and Condor had pieces of razor blades in their stomach after eating contaminated doughnuts.
During the investigation detectives became suspicious of the couple’s claim, as no other doughnuts have been found to have pieces of a razor blade and no other complaints were filed.
A witness told detectives that Leazer-Hardman and Condor had complained about their financial problems.
Faced with mounting evidence, Condor, finally admitted to the scam, claiming that he and Leazer-Hardman placed pieces of metal inside the donuts to force the grocery store into a settlement.
Condor also admitted to providing her coworker with one of the contaminated doughnuts.
Leazer-Hardman and Condor were jailed on charges of assault and filing a false police report.
