Another person arrested for allegedly spitting in and touching ice cream
A Florida woman has been arrested after she was caught sticking her unwashed hands in ice cream at a scoop shop, FOX has reported.
As if that wasn't bad enough, she was also allegedly witnessed spitting directly into the ice cream, before urinating into a bucket used to make the dessert back in June.
Law enforcement from the Indian Shores Police arrested 66-year-old Jung Soon Wypcha after she contaminated food in Lu Lu’s Ice Cream and Candy Shop. She was caught committing the contaminating acts by the owners on surveillance cameras, and they contacted the police not long after discovering the damning video.
According to police investigators, Wypcha used the bathroom in the ice cream parlor five times with the door open and did not bother to wash her hands on any of those occasions. Not long after using the toilet, she could be seen walking into the freezer and opening ice cream containers, which she touched with her unwashed hands. She also picked her nose before touching the ice cream and spitting into the containers.
Shopper gargles mouthwash and spits it back into the bottle:
As a result of these egregious misdemeanors, the woman in question was taken into police custody and charged with tampering and criminal mischief.
She was not found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time when she committed the offenses and has no history of mental illness. The ice cream parlor was forced to dispose of more than $2000.00 worth of stock.
This isn't the first time something like this has happened either. This week, a man named Lenise Martin III was arrested after a video emerged on social media of Martin pulling a carton of Blue Bell Ice Cream from a freezer, opening it, licking the frozen dessert and poking it with his finger before putting it back on the shelf.
