Police said a couple made laxative-laced cookies for striking school employees because they were tired of the noise from the picket line near their home.

Authorities in eastern Ohio said none of the striking workers ate the sugar cookies, but the couple was charged with contaminating the treats.

Police said the pair complained on Facebook about drivers honking in support of the striking bus drivers, cooks, and custodians.

Investigators said they also made a video showing the laxative pills being mixed into the cookie batter.

The strike in the Claymont School District in Tuscarawas County is in its third week.

Authorities said Bo Cosens and Rachel Sharrock appeared in court Tuesday to face several charges.

Sharrock’s attorney declined to comment Friday. Court records didn’t list an attorney for Cosens.
