A 47 year old Michigan woman was fired from her job for baking a co-worker brownies. Seems innocent enough, right? Brownies aren't a crime. They are if you've been harboring negative feelings towards said co-worker and decide to do something about it by putting laxatives in the mix!
The dessert was confiscated by police after another employee tipped off a member of management. Ann Arbor News reports that initially the woman denied putting the substance in the dish, but once she found out the brownies could be tested, she confessed.
Other co-workers reported that there was tension between the two but no other specifics were given.
Nobody had a chance to eat the brownies,
so Betty Crocker wasn't charged. However, Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart said this is actually a serious crime. "A lot of times you see it in movies or TV shows where someone tries to do this or play a joke, but it's very serious," he said. "It's a criminal act."
Remember this the next time you go to the break room to get a snack!
