Police officials said the 29-year-old suspect, later identified as Veronica, reportedly invited the victim, who was not identified, to continue drinking with her at home, Friday night. Deputies responded to the suspect’s home and met with the victim who was later taken to hospital. Officials said that after two drinks the man said that he’d started to feel sick which is when Veronica revealed that she’d added something to both beverages.
The unidentified victim told the responding deputies he was vomiting for about 30 minutes before he was able to call for help and became sick again while providing his statement to a deputy. the 29-year-old woman is accused of spiking a man’s drinks with Raid after inviting the victim back home after meeting him at a bar earlier that evening.
Veronica wasn’t in the house when deputies arrived, but a K-9 unit tracked her down nearby and she was taken into custody. She is being held without bond pending first appearance on a felony charge of poisoning food or drink. Bodycam footage released by the Sheriff’s Office shows a responding officer walking through a wooded area with a dog from the K-9 unit.
As the officer begins to walk past a bush the dog can be seen standing near a woman who is sitting with her back against a tree. Officials also said that the unidentified victim was known to Veronica and his condition at this time is unclear. Not immediately clear is what led to the woman seeking to poison the man’s drink.
