Eunice, LA- Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot reports that on May 15, 201g, Eunice police
Department was contacted by Mercy Regional Medical Center regarding a patient receiving an injury to
her mouth from a foreign object that was found inside of her food she purchased at a local fast food
restaurant. Once the officers arrived they spoke with the patient, who is identified as Correill Bradley,29
of Eunice. Bradley claims that she went to the drive thru of a local fast food restaurant (Major Chain)
and purchased a sandwich. Bradley claimed that once she left the restaurant and was driving, she bit
into the sandwich and felt a strange object in her food and pain to her mouth. Bradley claims she went
home and discovered that the sandwich contained a razor blade. lnitially, Bradley did not wish to file a
report with police, stating she did not want to get anyone in trouble, but later agreed to a report but
refused to write a statement. Officers believed that the injuries were not consistent with that of biting
into an object but did appear to possibly be self -inflicted.
Officers recovered the sandwich as well as the razor blade and began to investigate the allegations.
Officers examined the sandwich and the razor blade. lt appeared to be a new razor and that it showed
no signs of being mixed into any contents of the sandwich.
While awaiting security footage from the restaurant, Officers looked into local stores that sold similar
razor blades. Officers located a store that sold the same blade and discovered that the store was missing
a pack from their inventory. Officers were able to obtain security video showing Bradley going into the
store and removing a pack of razors minutes before she purchased the sandwich. Bradley did not pay
for the razor blades before leaving the store. Officers also discovered that on the day of the incident,
Bradley had filed an insurance claim with the restaurant’s insurance as well as seeking representation of
an Attorney for Personal lnjury.
Officers were able to review security video footage ofthe restaurant and discovered that Bradley
walked into the restaurant minutes after she she left the store where she stole the razor blades. Officers
also determined that no one at the restaurant placed any contraband inside of the sandwich and lead
officers to believe that the claims made by Bradley were false. Officers were able to obtain enough
information to seek an arrest warrant for Bradley for the charges of criminal mischief and theft.
Bradley was arrested Friday May 18, 2018. According to Chief Fontenot, the investigation is still ongoing
and other charges are possible.
