An employee at an Ohio Big Boy restaurant is charged with pouring animal medication into customer coffee with the intent to poison.
The Blade newspaper reports ( http://bit.ly/sRU1CO) 36-year-old Edwin Ledgard told Toledo police that he had a delusion to kill customers.
A police report says the Toledo man went to the Frisch's Big Boy on his day off on Friday and poured into a pot of coffee a drug called Dextran, which is used to treat anemia in baby pigs. Police say another worker at the restaurant saw what Ledgard was doing.
Ledgard was jailed on a charge of contaminating a substance for human consumption. A judge set his bond at $100,000 on Monday. A message seeking comment was left with his public defender.
