Man who put razor blades in pizza dough sentenced to prison


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A man accused of putting razor blades and screws in pizza dough at supermarkets in Maine and New Hampshire has been sentenced to four years and nine months in  prison. The hearing proceeded Thursday although 39-year-old Nicholas Mitchell of Dover, New Hampshire, was recovering from COVID-19 contracted in jail. The judge said the crime spread fear in the community and Mitchell tearfully apologized. He said he wanted revenge on the pizza dough company that fired him, not to hurt anybody. Supermarket surveillance video showed him handling pizza dough and loitering around a refrigerated case. He was ordered to pay $230,000 in restitution to Hannaford Supermarkets.
