Woman, 47, is fired after she 'baked laxatives into brownies she intended to give to a colleague'


A Michigan engineering company employee has been fired after police determined she baked laxatives into brownies intended for a departing colleague’s send-off.

Saline police Chief Jerrod Hart says officers confiscated the tainted confections on May 3 after another employee at MMI Engineered Solutions tipped off management. 

Hart said the 47-year-old woman initially denied putting laxatives in the brownies, according to the Ann Arbor News.

It wasn’t until she learned that investigators would test them for tampering that she admitted to the act. 

Her name hasn’t been released.

Other employees told police there may have been tension between the woman and the departing employee, but specifics were not released.

Police said no one ate the brownies. 

Hart says the woman faces no charges, but if anyone had eaten the brownies it could have been considered a criminal act.

‘A lot of times you see it in movies or TV shows where someone tries to do this or play a joke, but it’s very serious,’ he told the publication. ‘It’s a criminal act.’
