SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A woman has been arrested after she allegedly tried to sneak tainted bottles of orange juice into a refrigerator at a San Jose coffee shop.

The Mercury News says a customer reported seeing the woman remove two bottles of orange juice from her purse and place them in a refrigerated display case at the Starbucks store.
When the customer alerted store staff, the woman fled.

After examining the bottles and detecting what they described as a "toxic smell," store employees called 911.

Police tracked 50-year-old Ramineh Behbehanian to her home about five miles away after a witness spotted her license plate number.
Behbehanian was arrested on suspicion of felony poisoning.
Tests revealed she had mixed rubbing alcohol with the juice.
Investigators don't have a motive.
