A woman is accused of trying to poison jars of baby food at a South Florida supermarket.

Police arrested Shirley Ybarra, 50, after workers at a Publix store saw her mixing a black liquid with some of the items in her shopping cart. Surveillance video shows the woman wearing latex gloves and using an eyedropper to mix the black liquid.

Investigators say Ybarra tried to leave the store with the tainted items but was stopped by store workers at the door.

Ybarra told the employees that she was mixing food for her son.

Authorities say that there is no evidence that she placed contaminated items back on the shelf.

A judge has set her bond at $250,000, saying that Ybarra represented a "danger to the community."

I hope she gets locked away for life and some beats the living crap out of her everyday for the rest of her miserable life, I also hope her son gets a shot at her too. There is no worse crime than one against a child, pick on someone your own size. and EEWWWHH she looks like a crack head/hooker…crawling with disease, gross who would sleep with that.

First, what is the black liquid? Easy to acused someone of something without proper facts…

Also, for someone to say she should eat the black liquid, those people are lowering themselves to the same level as a mother who would kill her child.

If that is indeed a lethal poison she was administering, then as a society we should focus on helping those (who were probably victimized themselves to have come to this point), instead of making things worse and spreading the disease called hatred.
