Man Pours Bleach On Meat In Grocery Store

STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) — The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man they say poured bleach on a grocery store case full of meat.

John Allen Waskey, 57, of Chester has been charged with malicious destruction of property of more than $500, theft of less than $1,000 and contaminating or poisoning food or drink.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that deputies say managers at the Food Lion in Stevensville reported Friday that 96 packages of chicken and pork had been ruined by bleach.

Authorities say security video from the night before showed a man pouring bleach over the meat. Workers identified the man as a former employee.
