Ex-employees charged with poisoning salsa at Mi Ranchito

Justin Kendall has the story of two former employees accused of poisoning the salsa at Mi Ranchito in Lenexa over on the Plog.

Husband-and-wife duo Arnoldo Bazan, 30, and Yini De La Torre, 19, are accused of mixing a Methomyl-based pesticide into salsa and serving it to customers at Mi Ranchito’s Lenexa location.

Court documents allege that Bazan and De La Torre plotted

to poison Mi Ranchito’s customers, hoping to hurt the restaurant’s business as well as hoping the blame would fall

on the restaurant’s owner.
