An Idaho woman who launched a series of attacks with ketchup and other condiments against a drive-up book drop at an Idaho library pleaded guilty to the charges.
Joy Cassidy, 75, of Boise, apparently had issues with the library and pleaded guilty to a series of events going back to 2009. Covering the books with various condiments there were more than ten assaults on the book drop causing over $1,000 in damages.
MSNBC reports: “Authorities say Cassidy dumped an assortment of condiments including ketchup, maple syrup and mayonnaise into the book deposit because of conflicts the senior citizen had in the past with library patrons and staff.” Surveillance cameras were installed to try and identify the individual responsible but Cassidy was not apprehended until police staked out the library.”
According to a Boise police report, Cassidy was taken into custody after she was observed putting an open jar of mayonnaise into the drop box.
CapitalBay reports: “An Idaho judge sentenced Cassidy to a month in jail and ordered her to have no contact with Boise area libraries for two years.”
