Long Island couple charged with Jell-O fraud
A Long Island couple has been charged with filling supermarket Jell-O boxes with sand, buying them and then returning them for the cash refund, according to this report:
Alexander Clement, 68, and his wife, Christine Clement, 64, of East Northport disposed of the evidence afterward -- by cooking up and eating the contents of the boxes they had emptied, authorities said.
Their puddings of choice? Pistachio and butterscotch.
Police said the couple struck four stores a total of five times. Christine would buy about 10 boxes each time. Her hubby was the driver.
When the pair got home, she allegedly would empty the boxes' contents and replace them with plastic sandwich bags filled with the sand and salt.
