UHRICHSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Police say a couple made laxative-laced cookies for striking school employees in Ohio because they were tired of all the noise coming from the picket line near their home.

Authorities in eastern Ohio say none of the striking workers ate the sugar cookies, but the couple was charged with contaminating the treats.

Police say that before the pair made the cookies, they complained on Facebook about drivers honking in support of the striking bus drivers, cooks and custodians.

The strike in the Claymont School District in Tuscarawas County is in its third week.

Authorities say Bo Cosens and Rachel Sharrock appeared in court Tuesday to face charges of complicity, permitting drug abuse and disorderly conduct.

Sharrock’s attorney declined to comment Friday. Court records didn’t list an attorney for Cosens.
