N.H. Coffee Shop Employee Added Mucus to Officers' Coffees

JAFFREY, N.H. --

A former Dunkin' Donuts employee has been accused of adding "nasal mucus" to the coffees of two Jaffrey police officers.

According to police, on June 19 two police officers went to the Dunkin' Donuts on Peterborough Street and ordered two cups of coffee from 20-year-old Christopher Hildreth.

Authorities said Hildreth grabbed two coffee cups, then went to the back room to make the coffee. The officers said in the affidavit that they found the behavior odd since they had ordered coffee from Hildreth before and had never seen him go out back to make coffee.

The officers were able to watch Hildreth from a store-front video monitor that shows a view of the back room, police said. The officers said they watched Hildreth put nasal mucus into the cups.

The officers did not say anything to Hildreth but later returned the coffees and contacted the manager to review the surveillance tapes.

The store manager reviewed the tape and terminated Hildreth shortly after viewing them.

Hildreth has been charged with two counts of attempted simple assault.
