Proof in the Pudding: Couple Arrested for Tampering With Jell-O Boxes

Alexander Clement, 68, and his wife, Christine Clement, 64, have been charged with food tampering with Jell-O boxes. Described as a well-off couple, they allegedly filled boxes with sand and salt to get the $1.40 refund upon returning the items.

The couple appears to have a taste for pistachio and butterscotch . . . and, according to the police, fraud. Four stores were involved and police say that Alexander would drive Christine, who would buy 10 boxes at a time. That would amount to around $56 for one round of pudding pilfering.

The gig was up when someone returned a box and it was traced to the elderly couple.
