New York Couple Facing Charges for Jell-O Tampering

AP

EAST NORTHPORT, N.Y. -- A Suffolk County husband and wife are facing charges of tampering in connection to packages of Jell-O pudding mix that were found to contain salt and sand.

Suffolk County police arrested 68-year-old Alexander Clement and 64-year-old Christine Clement on Sunday. The East Northport residents are facing multiple counts of petit larceny and tampering with a consumer product.

Authorities said Christine Clement bought the boxes from four Long Island stores, removed the contents, and refilled them with a mix of salt and sand. The boxes were then returned for a refund.

Police said there was no indication of any intent to harm anyone, only to get the pudding mix without having to pay for it.

The Clements will be arraigned at a later date. They did not return a call seeking comment.
