Woman allegedly tampered with store's soup
by UPI

AUSTIN, Texas -- A woman has been arrested for allegedly putting mothballs in the soup at a Texas supermarket.

Lee Suzan Sechler, 44, allegedly was caught by surveillance cameras acting suspiciously near the soup cart at a Randalls supermarket in Austin, Texas, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Police said she frequented the Randalls soup cart regularly and, among other things, often bought mothballs.

She was questioned by police and then arrested Thursday and may now face up to 20 years in prison if convicted for tampering with a consumer product, a second-degree felony. Her bail was set at $100,000.

"She denied putting 'handfuls of mothballs' in the soup; however, she did say that it was possible she might have 'maybe' dropped some Prozac or crackers in the soup, but (she) wasn't sure,'" said detective Brendon Hanly. "She asked me several times if she should confess."
