    SALINE, MI - A 47-year-old Adrian woman lost her job after police determined she put laxatives in a departing co-worker's going-away brownies.

    Police were called on May 3 to MMI Engineered Solutions, 1715 Woodland Drive in Saline, after the company received a tip from an employee that the woman planned to put laxatives in brownies she was bringing to a send-off for another worker, said Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart.

    The company intervened, confiscated the suspect brownies and called police before the brownies could be eaten, Hart said.

    When interviewed by police, the 47-year-old initially denied putting laxatives in the brownies, Hart said. But when informed the brownies would be forensically-tested for tampering, she admitted to baking in a cube of laxatives, police said.

    But police learned from other employees, though the suspect denied it, that there may have been some previous tension between the departing employee and the 47-year-old woman, Hart said. The nature of the spat was not immediately known.

    Though police say the woman admitted to tampering with the brownies, Hart said no charges will be pursued.

    No one ate the brownies and the company fired her, he said. The matter would be different had someone consumed the food.

    Hart said the incident is normally something school-age children should be reminded of - that tampering with food isn't a joke, especially as allergies and medical concerns may not be known.

    "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 said. "It's a criminal act."

    "... There's just so much going on in the world, to create a problem like this is unnecessary and it's criminal," he said.

    A representative for MMI Engineered Solutions declined to comment

    She should have kept her mouth shut and just brought the brownies in. She could have put some Haribo sugar free bears on top of the brownies to make them extra strength.

    Why would you say something like this out loud so that someone else could overhear it? I assume that's how she got caught.

    If you are going to do something like that, leave an anonymous food donation and make sure that it can't be traced back to you (not that I recommend doing this).

    She should have moved in silence. She could have made the brownies and another dish. Then snuck the brownies in (on a random dollar tree or Walmart platter). Then, she would have to eat one of the brownies or at least pretend to eat it so she could play as a victim.

    Opening her mouth to a coworker meant she should have played it safe and brought in a bag of chips or something. Make them all look like fools when the police showed up. That would have been my chosen plan. Police ask about laxatives and I calmly point to the bag of doritos that I brought in still sealed. And then i cry like why do you all hate me. Lol

    Right! I dont see the point of this if the person she hated was leaving. I guess she wanted to send her out with a bang lol

    Right! They spent heaven knows how long disliking the person and now they make it known? They could have expressed that earlier.

    That was my thought. This goes even beyond intent. This was a full on attempt.

    My guess is she is a 2520.

    See.....
    That’s why you do your dirt all by your lonely.
    People don’t know how to keep their mouthes shut. Why would she share that plan with someone?

    I'm guessing she didn't like most of the people at her job and told the one person she did like so they would know not to eat it, thinking that they'd be just as messed up as her and go along with it.

    Its not even like she was just after one person. She was trying to take everyone out.

    Also, if she's telling the truth about how much she put in there, she lost her job over a plan that wouldn't have worked. She said she put one cube in the brownie mix and one cube = one serving. One cube spread out into a whole pan of brownies and given to multiple people really wouldn't do anything to them at all.
