It sounds like like a scene straight out of a comedy. A woman in Michigan was recently fired after bringing a batch of laxative-filled brownies to a co-worker’s going away party. According to, police were called to MMI Engineered Solutions on May 3rd after the company received a tip about the laced dessert and confiscated the brownies before they were eaten by employees.

While the 47-year-old suspect initially denied putting laxatives in the brownies, she admitted to it when officers said they would be forensically-tested. While the motive is not totally clear, other employees suggested that there may have been some previous tension between the departing employee and the suspect. No charges will be pursued.
