Disgruntled grocery clerk who sickened boss found guilty

Plot involved packing allergic supervisor's coffee with peanut butter

A former grocery clerk at an Edmonton Safeway has been found guilty of trying to poisoning his boss.

Kirby Christopher Sherick, 27, admitted in court last week to lacing his supervisor’s coffee with peanut butter even though he knew she was allergic to peanuts, according to a report in the Edmonton Journal.

The female supervisor fell ill an hour and a half after drinking the coffee.

Sherk testified in court that he was unhappy with his job stocking shelves at night.

He was found guilty of administering a noxious substance and sentenced to one year of probation and 150 hours of community service.
