Needles in the meat

East St. Louis, Ill. — (NBC News) An Illinois man is in jail, accused of sticking sewing needles into packages of meat in a Belleville grocery store.

Court documents show 68 year old Ronald Avers is accused of sliding sewing needles into packaged meat like ground beef, roasts and pork chops from May of last year to this July at a Shop ‘n Save grocery store.

The FBI alleges in court filings that a Shop ‘n Save grocery store reported on July 9 at least seven cases since May of last year in which sewing needles were found in packaged meat products.

The criminal complaint alleges one customer found a needle in her mouth while eating and another reported being stuck in the hand. Other customers said they found needles in the meat they bought but were not injured.

The court documents state he confessed telling officials he “didn’t know why he did it…just for the hell of it”.
