2 SIU students accused of using hot cookies to burn man
November 7, 2007EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. — Two students at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville kidnapped, paddled and burned a young man with fresh-baked cookies after a drug deal went bad, prosecutors said. Rosario James, 23, and Jordan Sallis, 20, were charged Monday with aggravated kidnapping, robbery and aggravated battery.
Sheriff’s Capt. Brad Wells said that on Friday night, three men went to James’ house to buy marijuana, but two of them grabbed the drugs and fled. He said the suspects held the third man, demanded $400, beat the man with a wooden paddle, and burned his neck and shoulders with fresh-baked cookies. AP
This is some serious baking. Next time you plan to jack a drug dealer, check he hasn’t been baking all day. I think an event like this really gives some street cred to Weeds (an excellent Showtime series). The terms “half-baked” and “baked” might be a little more literal than imagined. To prove these guys weren’t just cookie making monsters, they made sure to utilize shaving, peeing, and old school violence to intimidate the thief.
