LONG ISLAND - An elderly couple have been arrested and charged with tampering with packages of Jello pudding in some Suffolk and Nassau county stores. Christine Clement, 64, and Alexander Clement, 68, would buy the Jello pudding, empty out the contents and then replace the pudding with aquarium sand. After resealing the packages, they would return the boxes to the store for a monetary refund. Police do not feel the couple were doing this with the hopes of harming anyone, they were simply using this technique to steal the product. Christine Clement was charged with five counts of Petit Larceny and five counts of Tampering With A Consumer Product 2nd Degree. Alexander Clement was charged with five counts of Petit Larceny and five counts of Tampering With A Consumer Product 2nd Degree. Police pinpointed the couple after watching hours of store surveillance footage.

Isn’t a bag of aquarium sand a hell of a lot more expensive than a box of Jello pudding powder? I thought that stuff was about 8-cents or something. I mean, unless the couple were also replacing the aquarium sand with the pudding powder…which would be kinda funny…I don’t get the logic here.

    Kind of off topic here, but before I clicked over to read this story, I was thinking that I could totally devour a tub full of Butterscotch pudding right now. Weird, huh?

    And, wth? I certainly hope they weren't aiming to get rich with this little scheme…I've never paid more than $1.25 for my puddin'.

    When there was no meat we ate fowl. When there was no fowl we ate crawdad. And when no crawdad could be found, we ate sand.
    You ate sand?
    We ate sand.

    I have apparently failed on multiple levels here. This link actually works. I will now hang my head in shame.

    Yeah, I agree, I totally do not see the logic in this either.

  • tenente

    thing is, how expensive is aquarium sand?

  • Miss Doyle

    I wonder if they returned it on their next trip to the store or did they make a special trip to the store ? If they made a special trip, they would spend more in gasoline than a box of pudding is worth.

  • Murphy

    Kind of sad. It's also kind of amusing, trying to picture the old couple scaming the pudding!!

  • misfirefly

    I can actually understand stealing Jell-O(it is food), but having worked retail for 10 yrs I can not understand why people steal dividers from the registers at grocery stores

  • Dakota Valkyrie

    $240 worth of pudding? Maybe they were using it for kinky sex or a pudding-wrestling show to get more income.

  • Namekaos

    Did anyone stop to think, they are promoters and it's geriatric pudding wrestling night at the senior center?

  • Namekaos

    Well Dakota, all I can say is duh, must need more coffee, my reading comprehension isn't up to par. In any case i agree with you
