(Meredith) – Aurora, Colorado police ticketed a Denver woman for allegedly damaging a 7-Eleven microwave by heating up urine inside it, which caused the urine to explode.
Angelique Sanchez, 26, was issued a summons for damaged property. The microwave is reportedly worth about $500.
According to KUSA, a police report shows Sanchez left the 7-Eleven after the incident and was found waiting at a nearby health clinic for a physical and urinalysis for a future job.
Medical experts say during a drug test, urine is checked to ensure it is at body temperature, not room temperature. This is one way of telling if the urine sample was actually given at the time of the test.
The police report shows the 7-Eleven clerk called police on Sanchez after hearing a "loud bang" a few seconds after Sanchez placed something in the microwave. The clerk told police Sanchez looked at the microwave and walked out the door, and then the clerk noticed yellow liquid "dripping from the microwave and the smell was unquestionably urine."
The police report shows the employee asked Sanchez to clean up the mess. Sanchez reportedly told police that she had cleaned up the mess and did not understand what the problem was.
Sanchez has been arrested several times and convicted of theft, according to a Colorado criminal background check.
