Iowa Woman Accused of Drugging Salsa7 hours ago
WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) Charges have been filed against a northeast Iowa woman accused of doctoring a salsa dip with her prescription drug that made another person ill.
Jayden Schwickerath, 18, of New Hampton, was arrested on Friday and charged with a felony count of administering a harmful substance, the Fayette County sheriff's office said Monday.
She allegedly put an antidepressant into a salsa-cheese dip at a home in rural West Union on Sept. 22, Chief Deputy James Davis said.
Davis said one person became ill, but didn't seek medical attention. The person reported it three days later, he said.
Davis said officials are waiting for the state crime lab to confirm the drug.
Schwickerath was released from jail on Saturday.
