ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a New Mexico man on charges he handed out semen-tainted yogurt samples at a grocery store.
Thirty-two-year-old Anthony Garcia was indicted Wednesday on charges of adulterating food and making false statements to federal investigators. He was arrested Wednesday afternoon and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.
Garcia is accused of handing out tainted yogurt samples at a Sunflower Market in Albuquerque in January.
Officers responded to the store after a woman called to report an employee had given her what she was told was a yogurt sample. The woman told police she believed it was actually a bodily fluid.
Police say they tested the yogurt and found semen. They then linked it to Garcia using DNA.
Garcia remains jailed, and authorities say he'll be assigned an attorney at Thursday's hearing.
