A California woman has been arrested after she had licked $1,800 worth of goods at a Safeway grocery store.
An employee of the store in South Lake Tahoe told the police that Jennifer Walker, 53, had picked put several pieces of jewelry in her hands and licked them, before loading her cart with other items.
Walker was booked into the El Dorado County Jail on a charge of felony vandalism, with her bail set at $10,000.
She is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday morning.
All her items in her cart were deemed un-sellable because of cross-contamination.
Grocery stores are deemed as essential businesses and have stayed open during the coronavirus pandemic. They are taking this matter very seriously, and unfortunately, this has not been the first case of these kinds of issues.
Last month, a woman was arrested for couching on $35,000 worth of food at a Pennsylvania grocery store.
The Department of Justice, last month, said that people who intentionally spread the virus could be charged with terrorism.
In Missouri, a 26-year old man was charged with making a terrorist threat after he was filmed licking sticks of deodorant at a Wal-Mart.
We don’t really know what to say about this incident, and the others that happened before it. All we can say is, please, stop licking things and help us flatten the curve.
