STILLWATER, NY (WTNH)– A 72-year-old New York woman was arrested for lacing cookies with poison and mailing them to a person.
After a lengthy investigation, police say Joanne Jones mailed a package of cookies that were laced with mouse poison and a laxative to a Stillwater resident in March. The recipient of the package did not eat the cookies but instead called police.
“The defendant’s actions created a risk of serious physical injury to the victim,” Stillwater police said on their Facebook.
Jones recently surrendered to police where she was charged with reckless endangerment. She was released with an appearance ticket for court.
