Jello Jimmiers Apprehended

Suffolk County Police today arrested an East Northport husband and wife
for tampering with JELL-O brand pudding mixes purchased at local
supermarkets.

After reviewing hours of surveillance video and following up on numerous
leads, Crime Section officers from the Second, Fourth, and Sixth
Precincts identified Christine Clement, 64, and Alexander Clement, 68,
both from 139 Dickinson Ave., as the individuals responsible for
tampering with the pudding mix.

The investigation revealed that Christine purchased the product, removed
the original pudding mix and re-filled the boxes with a sandwich bag
containing salt and sand. The boxes were then resealed and returned to
the supermarkets for a monetary refund. There is no indication that
Christine’s intent was to inflict physical harm to any other consumers
or the supermarkets, but to obtain the pudding mix without having to pay
for it. None of the individuals that purchased the product that had been
tampered with were injured.

Christine Clement was charged with five counts of Petit Larceny and five
counts of Tampering With A Consumer Product 2nd Degree. Alexander
Clement was charged with five counts of Petit Larceny and five counts of
Tampering With A Consumer Product 2nd Degree. Both will be arraigned at
First District Court in Central Islip at a later date.
