Police in San Jose, California, are looking for a motive, after arresting a woman accused of sneaking orange juice bottles spiked with a lethal amount of rubbing alcohol into a Starbucks. (April 30)
It sounds like a bizarre story line straight out of an episode of "CSI." A woman was arrested after allegedly planting tainted bottles of orange juice in a Starbucks refrigerator in San Jose.
Witnesses said they saw the woman walk into a Starbucks in the 6000 block of Snell Avenue and take two bottles of orange juice out of her purse. The woman then put the orange juice bottles in a refrigerator with other purchasable items, reported the Mercury News.
Those bottles of O.J. were tainted with rubbing alcohol.
"According to the fire captain on scene, the quantity of rubbing alcohol inside the bottles was a lethal quantity in both bottles," said Sgt. Jason Dwyer of the San Jose Police Department during a press conference.
The bottles of orange juice were confiscated before anyone could consume them.
A witness wrote down the woman's license plate number, which led police to 50-year-old Ramineh Behbehanian. She was arrested at her home on suspicion of felony poisoning.
