Police search for food tampering suspect

Red Wing Police are looking for a juvenile male who allegedly placed blades in a package of hamburger buns at EconoFoods, 160 S. Tyler Road, late last month.

A Red Wing resident reported he found blades in buns he had purchased Aug. 31.

Store security cameras show a 10- to 13-year-old male being dropped off from a mid-sized four-door gray car at the front door of the grocery store Aug. 30. He is then seen placing the blades in the buns.

The male is described as white with short brown hair and wearing a reddish/orange sleeveless shirt and black shorts.

Police stress that they believe this is an isolated incident and the general public is not at risk. Anyone with information on the identity of the male is asked to call police at 651-385-3155.
