Couple arrested for planting razor blades in donuts, eating them

March 14 (UPI) -- Carol Lee Leazer-Hardman and Michael Condor of Draper, Utah, were commiserating about their debts at the Dollar Tree where they both work when they concocted a scheme to swallow the razor blade doughnnuts.

They targeted a Smith's Food and Drug Store in the plaza where they worked, first purchasing the doughnuts then planting the blades. They then called police claiming they had found a triangular piece of metal in their food.

Store management was skeptical of the story, but immediately pulled remaining doughnuts off the shelves. Police say the pastries were in tamper-proof packaging and shipped from out of state. Draper Police Sgt. Chad Carpenter said that as detectives questioned the evidence, Condor admitted that the two had the razors in the donuts so they could get a settlement from the store.

Sgt. Carpenter said the suspects had purposely eaten fingernail- to thumbnail-sized pieces of broken razor blades. They also offered tainted doughnut to a Dollar Tree coworker who wasn't in on the scheme, and she suffered cuts to her mouth.

Leazer-Hardman and Condor have been charged with filing a false police report and assault.
