OXFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Two Michigan Burger King employees have been charged with food tampering after a police officer claimed his sandwich contained human spit.

Oxford Township residents Jacqueline Rowland and Jon McQuater were charged Wednesday with the crime, a felony punishable by four years in prison and a $10,000 fine, the Detroit News reported Saturday. McQuater, also suspected in an arson case, remained jailed Saturday under a $5,000 bond.

Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said Deputy Steve Clark was working the midnight shift June 4 and ordered a meal from the Burger King drive-through. When he received his order, Clark reportedly lifted the bread and found human saliva.

Don Maki, director of operations for the restaurant, said Rowland, who is still employed part-time, was not aware of the tampering. He said he expects her to be cleared of all charges.
