A Utah couple claimed they swallowed razor blades hidden inside store-bought doughnuts, but police say their story had a hole in it — the couple planted them.
The couple, identified by authorities as Michael Condor, 35, and Carrol Lee Leazer, 39, were arrested Monday. Among the charges was aggravated assault because the couple let one of their co-workers at a Dollar Tree store bite into one of the doughnuts, police said.
Police got a call last week from someone who reported finding a triangular piece of sharp metal in a doughnut purchased from Smith’s Food Store in the city of Draper, outside Salt Lake City.
Hospital X-rays showed several razor blade pieces the size of fingernails in the couple’s stomachs, police said. But as detectives looked into it, “things weren’t adding up,” Draper police Sgt. Chad Carpenter told NBC affiliate KSL in Salt Lake City.
