Cook facing charges for licking parole officers' sandwiches


Mmmmm. Looks tasty, doesn't it? Well, if you were an officer at the South Valley New Mexico Women's Recovery Academy in Albuquerque, looks could be deceiving. (Via Wikimedia Commons / Duffman)

"Authorities say 59-year-old Yolanda Arguello would secretly lick the sandwiches she would serve to probation and parole officers." (Via KVIA

"She's accused of licking the cheese on sandwiches, serving ice dropped on the floor, and even sucking on an ice cube then spitting it into an officer's cup. ... She faces three counts of battery on a peace officer." (Via KOB-TV

Arguello's colleagues turned her in after they say they witnessed the gross food prep.

According to a criminal complaint posted by The Smoking Gun, one witness supposedly overheard Arguello say, "I don't work for Probation/Parole, I don't have to serve them. I will show them who is special, better than others."

KRQE reports Arguello no longer has security clearance to that facility, but the company director they spoke to wouldn't say if she would lose her job. 

KOAT spoke with someone identified as Arguello's roommate who said the accusations are false.
