A Colorado woman was issued a citation after allegedly blowing up a urine sample in a microwave at a convenience store.
The report from the Aurora Police Department says Angelique Sanchez was at a 7-Eleven store and placed something inside the microwave. Shortly afterward, the clerk heard a loud bang and called the police.
According to KUSA, the clerk told officers she saw a “yellow liquid dripping from the microwave and the smell was unquestionably urine.” The clerk said she asked Sanchez to clean up the mess, and Sanchez wiped the liquid out of the microwave and onto the floor and left the store.
The clerk then called police, and told them what happened.
Police located Sanchez at a nearby health clinic. She was reportedly waiting for a physical and drug screen for a potential job opportunity.
When the officer confronted Sanchez, she said she cleaned up the mess and “did not understand the problem.”
According to the report, the officer told her the urine sample blew up where people prepare their food, and Sanchez then said it wasn’t real urine.
Health experts said Sanchez was likely attempting to get the sample to body temperature in order to use it for the drug screening, but that heated urine can be detected.
Sanchez received a summons for damaged property, because the commercial-grade microwave costs $500. Sanchez was not allowed to complete her drug screening. KUSA reports Sanchez has had run-ins with law enforcement multiple times and was previously convicted of theft.
