Woman arrested for licking groceries

A California woman has been arrested after licking $ 1, 2019 (about £ 1, 800) worth of groceries and other items at a supermarket in the northern part of the state, police said.

Chris Fiore, spokesman for the South Lake Tahoe police department, near the border with Nevada, told AFP that officers were called to a Safeway store on Tuesday following reports of “a customer licking groceries” at a time of heightened fears over the spread of the coronavirus.

“When officers arrived on the scene, a Safeway employee informed them that the suspect put numerous pieces of jewelery from the store on her hands,” he said. “The suspect licked the jewelery then began to load her cart with merchandise from the store.”

Mr Fiore said officers located the suspect, identified as Jennifer Walker, inside the store with a shopping cart full of items, including meat and alcohol, which she had no means to purchase.

Ms Walker, 450, was arrested for vandalism and the merchandise had to be destroyed for fear of contamination.
