ALBUQUERQUE, May 30 (UPI) -- A New Mexico cook who is accused of serving tainted cheese sandwiches to state corrections employees on the sly might end up with something a little worse than double-secret probation.

While working at the South Valley New Mexico Women's Recovery Academy in Albuquerque, Yolanda Arguello allegedly licked pieces of cheese, put them on sandwiches, and served them to probation and parole officers.

During one such occasion, she allegedly told an officer "she'd make him or her a special grilled cheese sandwich" before licking the cheese, KOAT reported. Arguello reportedly said that "she'd show them who was special and better than others."

Another witness told investigators that the 59-year-old also once sucked on an ice cube, put it in a cup, and gave it to someone. She also would allegedly dump ice cubes on the floor and then serve them in pitchers of iced tea.

Arguello has been charged with three counts of battery on a peace officer.
