A Florida woman was arrested after police say she spit in ice cream, picked her nose and touched it, and urinated in a bucket used to churn ice cream, forcing the shop to close for days.
St. Petersburg resident Jung Soon Wypcha, 66, was charged with criminal mischief and tampering with consumer products Monday after sullying about $2,000 worth of ice cream at Lu Lu’s Ice Cream shop in Indian Shores, Florida, according to the arrest affidavit sent to USA TODAY by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Wypcha was caught on video after authorities reviewed the store’s surveillance tapes, which showed her tainting the store’s merchandise on several different occasions beginning June 17.
The affidavit said there were five incidents of Wypcha using the bathroom that her business shared with the ice cream shop, with the door wide open, and then putting her hands in the containers of ice cream without washing her hands.
It also said she was seen picking her nose before putting her hands in the ice cream and spitting into the containers after opening the freezer.

On June 22, the affidavit said she was seen urinating into a bucket used to churn ice cream and then emptying the bucket into a rinsing sink used to wash ice cream utensils.
The ice cream shop was forced to destroy all the ice cream and closed for about five days for the public's safety.
“I guess she wasn’t liking that we were getting popular,” owner Paul Chiulli told the Tampa Bay Times.
Wypcha bonded out of jail, WFTS-TV in Tampa reported.
