A woman was cited by police for heating up urine in a 7-Eleven microwave, which subsequently exploded and damaged the property.
26-year-old Angelique Sanchez of Denver was found at the Concentra Health Clinic less than a mile away from the gas station she visited in Aurora, Colorado.
A police report from May 3 reveals that the woman needed to take a physical and urinalysis test for a prospective job. 9News, who was first to report on the story, says that the urine has to be at around 98.6 degrees for it to be valid, which is probably why Sanchez tried to microwave it. What she didn’t know is that putting it in a microwave destroys the urine’s quality.
A clerk at the store called police after witnessing Sanchez putting something in the microwave. She later heard a “loud bang” and subsequently saw Sanchez look at the microwave and walk out the door.
The clerk then saw “Yellow liquid dripping from the microwave and the smell was unquestionably urine.” She told Sanchez that she needed to clean up the mess or she would call the authorities. Apparently she just “Wiped out the microwave onto the floor.” Sanchez also tried to claim the urine wasn’t real. She was issued a summons for damaging the microwave, which police claim is worth $500.
The reporting officer also informed an employee at Concentra that Sanchez shouldn’t be allowed to take the urine test that day.
This isn’t the first time Angelique Sanchez ran into trouble with the law. Previously she was convicted of theft, according to Colorado criminal background information.
