Razor Blade Doughnuts Eaten In 'Attempted Scam'
A couple have been arrested after allegedly planting razor blades inside doughnuts before eating them to try and get a payout from a Utah grocery store.
Hospital x-rays showed that Carole Lee Leazer-Hardman, 39, and Michael Condor, 35, had several razor blades in their stomachs after eating the tampered doughnuts.
Police in Draper said they even gave one to a colleague who was not part of their scam. She suffered cuts to her mouth after eating one of the razor blades and called police.
They added that the couple planned to make an injury claim against a Smith's Food and Drug store in the same mall where they both worked at a Dollar Store.
Smith's removed the doughnuts from their shelves after the couple complained they had found triangular pieces of sharp metal in the products.
But investigators became suspicious because the doughnuts were in tamper proof packaging.
"During the course of the investigation we were able to determine that they intentionally inserted these broken razor blades into doughnuts that they had purchased at Smith's and then swallowed the razor blades with the doughnuts," police said in a statement.
The pair were booked into Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and filing a false police report.
