Although her motives are as yet unknown, a San Jose, Calif., woman is under arrest on charges that include attempted murder after leaving orange juice bottles spiked with rubbing alcohol at a branch of Stabucks. According to Fox News:
Police arrested Ramineh Behbehanian, 50, late Monday. A customer reported seeing the woman take two bottles of orange juice from her bag and place them in a refrigerated display case at the Starbucks in San Jose around 3:45 p.m., Sgt. Jason Dwyer said Tuesday.
Behbehanian took off when she overheard the customer tell a store employee what he had seen. The employee followed her to the parking lot and copied down her license plate number as she drove off. After workers detected a toxic smell emanating from the bottles, they pulled them off the shelf and phoned 911.
Firefighters responding to the call tested the contents and found that the bottles contained “lethal amounts” of isopropyl rubbing alcohol mixed with the juice.
Officers tracked Behbehanian down at her San Jose home Monday night. She was placed into custody on suspicion of attempted murder and felony poisoning. Behbehanian could make her first appearance in court as soon as Thursday.
