Indiana State Trooper Chris Richey likely saved hundreds of consumers from food poisoning or even worse. Early Saturday morning, Trooper Richey stopped a truck for a traffic violation.
Trooper Richey ordered driver Jerome Upshaw of Cincinnati to pull over at a rest stop for an inspection. As the truck pulled away, Richey noticed a brown liquid leaking from the truck. Richey then had Upshaw open the truck.
The truck was carrying 200 pounds of contaminated food to different Chinese restaurants in Indianapolis and other cities in Indiana.
Authorities didn’t name any specific restaurants.
The truck contained raw chicken on open box of vegetables.
A health inspector from the Ripley County Health Department arrived on the scene to find broccoli, egg roll filling, poultry and cabbage not edible for human consumption. The food was ordered to be destroyed.
