Middle school cafeteria serves students sewing pins

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Day Care & Education

A terrible thing is taking place at Rachel Carson Middle School in Fairfax, County, Virginia: someone is putting sewing pins in the cafeteria food. It has been slowly building over the course of several weeks. On April 24, a cafeteria worker discovered one pin in a serving of applesauce. Two days later, a teacher saw a pin in a serving of yogurt. Then, on May 4, another cafeteria worker found a pin in a serving of cranberry sauce.

Some criminal is spiking these kids' food with sewing pins, and they must be stopped. Police do note that all of the food in which pins have been found were within reach of students going through the cafeteria line. And the pins were resting on top of the food.
"Whoever did this was not going out of their way to hide them," said Paul Regnier, a spokesman for Fairfax County Public Schools.

The school has beefed up in security in its cafeteria in an effort to prevent, identify and immediately deal with any other reported incidents. "The police investigation continues, and every effort will be made to identify, arrest and prosecute the anyone responsible for these incidents," authorities said. The police warn that the crime is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. I really think they ought to get the Fairfax County CSI unit into the home economics classroom at the school. Next thing you know, the perpetrator could escalate her crime spree by putting crochet hooks in the hot dogs.
