RICHMOND, VA (SafeCITY) – A Richmond woman is accused of trying to kill her husband. The weapon of choice? A peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
Police say 30-year-old Shanta Cruddus, poisoned the sandwich. This happened Friday around 5:30 p.m. in the 2000 block of 29th Street. Her husband said this is at least the third time his wife put something in his food with ulterior motives. Tonight, he's actually coming to her defense, hoping to protect her and their four children.
Shanta and her husband Michael have been together for 15 years. But this past Friday police believe she tried to kill him with a tainted PB & J.
"I felt like I was on TV," said neighbor, Ella Jackson. "I ain't never seen that before! The police with guns and stuff at her house!"
Jackson and her daughter live next door to Shanta and Michael. Neither of them believes the attempted murder allegations.
"Stop lying!" yelled Devonica Short. "What? Oh my goodness! That don't even sound like--that don't even sound like something--what??"
Police tell us Shanta gave Michael a PB & J with some type of substance on it. When he bit into he tasted something bitter and called police. Her husband tells us it was a muscle relaxer. No one answered when we knocked on Shanta's front door. But we were able to reach Michael by phone. Surprisingly he didn't believe his wife was trying to kill him either.
"She wanted me to go to sleep because she wanted money and if I was asleep she could go in my pocket and take it," said Michael.
And he tells us this is not the first time. He says she wanted his money to feed a drug habit.
"She's addicted to pain killers," he adds.
One neighbor ran back inside when we asked her about the allegations.
"You're smiling about it," said NBC 12's Evrod Cassimy.
"I don't want to talk about it," replied Jackson.
Shanta's husband says he just hopes she gets the help she needs. He told us in the past he did end up falling asleep and his wife was able to steal his money. He says he's tried to get his wife help before but she refused. Just how much money was this all over? He tells us just $60.

Lehman and his son, Forrest, returned later and she started to yell "Oh John," repeating it "over and over again and kept increasing the volume until it was a loud scream," according to the complaint affidavit.
Wachs was also moaning and making other sounds that "sounded like a woman experiencing sexual gratification in an extremely loud fashion," the affidavit says. She continued until the father and son left.
On March 3, Wachs was jailed on a charge that she posed as a licensed lawyer. She remained at the Polk County Jail on Tuesday without bail for being arrested while on bail for the previous charge.
John Liguori, a lawyer representing Wachs, said he would schedule a hearing to argue that his client should be released. Wachs, who has multiple sclerosis, requires several types of medication, and her medical needs cannot be properly met while in jail, Liguori said.
He said the State Attorney's Office is using a dispute between neighbors to further prosecute Wachs.
She was trying to get rest after having chemotherapy when she asked the boy to stop playing basketball, Liguori said. He said Wachs was calling to a friend inside her home for help with taking medication.
"There is no simulation of a sex act here," he said. "The kid didn't see anything. Moaning is not a sex act. There is no evidence that a sex act was occurring."
He accused Assistant State Attorney Brad Copley of targeting Wachs on behalf of those who oppose her personal, religious and political views. "For him to deal with something like this is just an extraordinary waste of resources," Liguori said.
In court Monday, Copley denied that Wachs' beliefs were at issue. "We certainly live in a society where a little boy can go outside and shoot hoops," Copley said.
Attempts to reach the Lehmans were unsuccessful.

Bartow, FL (SafeCITY) - Bradley Gummow, a 33-year-old teacher at Bartow High School in Polk County (FL) was Tasered and jailed after he allegedly tried to hide five bags of pot in his mouth.
According to Bartow Police, officers had pulled Gummow over for a traffic stop and were attempting to speak with him when they noticed what appeared to be a plastic bag in his mouth.
When officers asked Gummow what he had in his mouth, the suspect turned his head away and refused to be cooperative.
When Gummow continued to be uncooperative, the officer zapped him to attention with a Taser. Gummow then spit out what amounted to five bags of marijuana that were hidden inside his mouth.
Gummow was jailed on charges of marijuana possession, resisting officers without violence and violating probation as a result of reckless driving.
He was also arrested last August on a charge of driving under the influence.

Charleston, West Virginia (SafeCITY) - Mark Thompson, a 19-year-old Alum Creek resident was jailed after he reportedly killed his neighbor's goat while high on bath salts. He was then found laying next to the dead goat dressed in a woman's bra and panties.
According to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office, Thompson's neighbor called police at about 3:15 a.m. and reported that Thompson had stolen her goat.
She stated that her nephew, Joshua Pollis, had received a call stating that the goat was wandering around at Thompson's house and that he "better come get it".
Investigators say when Pollis and two women arrived at Thompson's residence, they found him in his bedroom with his pants down, wearing women's underwear and bra. The goat had been killed, and there was blood all over the room.
When asked about the goat, Thompson fled the scene. He was found by police several hours later in a nearby wooded area. Officers searched Thompson's home and found the goat deceased in a bedroom with blood coming from a stab wound to it's neck.
Additionally, there was a pornographic magazine laying nearby. Police transported the animal to a veterinarian for a necropsy. Results are pending.
Powers stated that she had purchased the goat for her 4-year-old grandson just 3 days before it's demise.
When investigators asked Thompson about his behavior, he claimed that he been using "bath salts" for three days. Neighbors stated that they had previously seen him engaged in strange behavior, like running through the woods, screaming, cursing, and hitting things.
Thompson was placed into the custody of Adult Protective Services and faces charges of animal cruelty. Police are continuing their investigation.

Changchung, Jilin Province, China (SafeCITY) - An unnamed China man made a hasty getaway this week when Chinese authorities raided an illegal brothel in the city of Changchung.
As police burst through the brothel's front door, the alleged customer left his clothes behind, ran across a rooftop, shimmied down a rusty pipe, and fled down the alleyway. A few women dressed only a towel were also seen following him across the rooftop.
China's flourishing sex industry prompted Chinese officials to launch a nationwide crackdown on prostitution last summer. China's anti-prostitution laws have netted about 250,000 prostitution-related arrests annually in recent years.
