Weird News Installment One: Are Laxative Laced Brownies The Ideal Send-Off Gift?

By Bianca Eugene

How far would you go to take down a coworker you detest? Would you risk corrupting your morals and values? If yes, you are in the same boat as a Michigan engineering company employee.

The 47 year old woman, whose name was not released, prepared laxative-laced brownies to give to a departing coworker. When another coworker informed management about the action, Saline police got involved.

Jerrod Hart, the chief of police, said that on May 3rd, officers confiscated the brownies that no one (thankfully) had a chance to eat. At first, the woman denied that she put laxatives in the brownies, but quickly retracted her statement after learning that investigators would test them.

Officers were informed by employees that there was tension between the woman and the departing coworker but specifics were not divulged. According to Hart, the woman does not face any charges since no one ate the brownies.
