July 10, 2019– Mary Greeley News – A Florida convenience store worker allegedly ruined an estimated $2,000 worth of ice cream at a rival business in the most disgusting way possible — by urinating, spitting and sticking her snot-covered fingers into its frozen treats, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
Jung Soon Wypcha, 66, was arrested Monday after authorities said her stomach-churning multi-day rampage at Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop in Indian Shores was caught on video.
Footage from June 17 allegedly showed Wypcha, who runs the Indian Shores Food Mart next door, using the bathroom her business shares with the ice cream shop five times with the door ajar — and not washing her hands afterward.
She then allegedly went to Lu Lu’s organic ice cream freezer and put her hands into the tubs.
Later that day, she was also caught on video picking her nose and putting her hands in the product, and then spitting into containers, according to the arrest affidavit.
Then, on June 22, she was seen on camera urinating in a bucket used to churn ice cream at Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop. She then allegedly dumped the pee-filled bucket into a sink where ice cream utensils and bowls are washed.
Paul Chiulli, who owns the ice cream joint, said all the tainted treats had to be destroyed for public safety, and that his store had to close for four to five days.
“I guess she wasn’t liking that we were getting popular,” he told the local paper.
Wypcha was charged with criminal mischief and tampering with consumer products, both felonies. She was released in lieu of bond, set at $55,000, for both charges, records show.
She declined to comment to the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday.
