Cops: Duo Gave Strikers Cookies Spiked With Laxative Because Picket Line Was Too Noisy

Angered by the noise coming from a union picket line across frome their home, an Ohio couple allegedly made sugar cookies spiked with a laxative and gave the baked goods to striking school employees, police allege.

According to investigators, Bo Cosens, 29, and Rachel Sharrock, 25, are both facing a felony contamination charge. Seen above, Cosens and Sharrock are each locked up in lieu of $1 million bond.

The couple lives on the same street where workers have been protesting since going on strike in late-March. Picketers on the line outside the Claymont Primary School in Uhrichsville are often saluted by passing motorists with a honk of a horn.

That repetitive noise, cops say, prompted Cosens and Sharrock to target the workers.

Police began investigating the pair upon receiving a tip about vides on Cosens’s Facebook showing the couple preparing the laxative-spiked treat. Additionally, video captured the couple discussing the delivery of the cookies to the strikers.

A union official told cops that no strikers ate the cookies, which were apparently delivered by a friend of the accused couple. The cookies were turned over to police and have been sent to a laboratory for testing.
