Carole Lee Leazer-Hardman, 39, and Michael Condor, 35, were arrested on Monday for putting razor blades in their own donuts from a Utah grocery store and actually eating them in order to get a cash settlement, reports KSEE News 24.
Police received a call from the couple last week who reported that they found a piece of metal in a doughnut from Smith’s Food Store in Draper, Utah, outside of Salt Lake City. Hospital X-rays reveal the several razor blade pieces in the couple’s stomachs, but investigators became suspicious when their story didn’t seem to add up.
Police Sgt. Chad Carpenter said that Condor later admitted that the couple purposely planted the razor blade pieces in the doughnuts so they could make money off of a settlement from the store. Condor even allowed one of his co-workers at a dollar store to bite into one of the doughnuts.
The couple was arrested for filing a false police report as well as for aggravated assault.
