According to news reports, urine was discovered in county employees morning brew at the Anaconda Court House early last month.
On June 7th, two county employees unknowingly drank the tainted coffee and are now being tested for hepatitis A, according to Connie Ternes Daniels, Anaconda-Deer Lodge interim chief executive.
To make matters worse, four days later employees found feces inside the coffee pot. Daniels said she also discovered feces under her desk and in a cup hidden in a closet down the hall from her office.
“It’s pretty disturbing that somebody would do something like this,” Daniels said. “It’s a serious I believe attack.”
The cup has been sent to the Montana State Crime Lab for fingerprint analysis, according to Tim Barkell, police chief for the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County.
