Disgruntled Employee Poisoned Office Coffee Maker With Bathroom Cleaner: Cops
Mayda Rivera-Juarez allegedly put cleaner in the office coffee maker multiple times, sickening some employees.
A Virginia woman was arrested last week after police believe she poisoned her office coffee machine because she didn't see eye-to-eye with her co-workers.
Mayda Rivera-Juarez was charged Friday with adulteration of food, drink, drugs or cosmetics, a Class 3 felony. Authorities allege the 32-year-old put bathroom cleaner in the coffee maker multiple times over the course of several weeks.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office says Rivera-Juarez allegedly sickened many of her co-workers at JAS Forwarding Inc. during that time.
Symptoms reportedly included digestive problems and diarrhea.
According to WTOP, the suspect's co-workers filed a police report against Rivera-Juarez, which started the investigation.
Rivera-Juarez is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.
She was arraigned Friday and is due back in court December 20.
If convicted of a Class 3 felony, Rivera-Juarez faces at least 5 years in prison.
