– Police arrested a woman after she admitted to making her co-workers sick by pouring cleaning chemicals into the office coffee machine.

Mayda Rivera-Juarez, 32, worked the front desk at JAS Forwarding Worldwide, a small shipping company with around eight employees.

Police say that over the course of several weeks, Rivera-Juarez poured cleaning fluid into the office’s Keurig coffee machine.

Co-workers would report falling ill over this period of time, including experiencing severe digestive problems and diarrhea.

“The employees at this place had been getting sick, didn’t quite know what was going on,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. “When [Rivera-Juarez] was coming in to get terminated, some of this came to light.”

No word on exactly why Rivera-Juarez wanted her coworkers to feel like they just visited Starbuck’s, but her fellow employees described her as a disgruntled employee who didn’t see ‘eye-to-eye’ with her coworkers.

Rivera-Juarez was arrested on Monday and charged with felony assault. She is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center with no bond.
