The couple placed the razor blades into a third doughnut, which they gave to a coworker. The coworker was unaware of the metal shards contained in the breakfast pastry.
The duo, whose names were not released, planned on putting bits of razor blades into the doughnuts, biting into them, and suing the store.
It was a scam to bilk grocery chain Smith's out of a settlement. Similar settlements have occurred after customers have found mice, broken glass, or other debris in food products.
No one was hurt eating the metal shards, despite swallowing flecks of metal.
No word on whether the arresting officers were swearing off doughnuts for the foreseeable future.
