Coronavirus: Woman charged with contaminating $35K worth of food at Pennsylvania grocery store

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A woman charged with terroristic threats for allegedly coughing and spitting on produce, meat and other merchandise at a Pennsylvania grocery store earlier this week was arraigned Thursday in the back of a patrol car to curb the potential threat of spreading the coronavirus.

Margaret Ann Cirko, 35, of Hanover Township, is charged with two counts of making a terroristic threat, one count of threatening to use a “biological agent” and one count of criminal mischief. All are felonies, according to the Hanover Township Police Department.


“Police were called to the business after Cirko entered the store making verbal threats that she was sick while intentionally coughing and spitting saliva/bile on produce/meat/merchandise,” a news release from the Hanover Township Police Department said. “Cirko continued this behavior in several aisles before attempting to steal a 12-pack of beer as she was being ordered to leave the store by employees.”



Everyday, a new story about someone spitting, coughing, threatening to kill...those who are working in order to provide the services that are essential.

Need help from fellow DUers re $1,200.00 stimulus check.

I received my check, but a friend of mine has not. I spoke with him today and told him I know there are links to get status on the stimulus check, I don't have these links, but the DU would know about them. Here is the info: He is employed and files his taxes on line as done by an accountant.

Question and info needed: Links he can use to find out about his $1,200.00 stimulus check.

TIA!!! Love the DU...
