PHOENIX — A man was sentenced to probation late last month for his involvement in tampering with food items at retail stores within the Phoenix area in October of 2018, according to a press release issued by the Arizona Attorney General’s office.
Per the release, David Lohr was sentenced on Oct. 27 to seven years of supervised probation on one count of criminal damage, a class 2 felony and three years of probation on two counts of adding poison or other harmful substance to food, drink or medicine, class 6 designated felonies.
No individuals reported illness associated with the consumption of the tampered items.
Lohr, who was ordered to pay restitution to a retail grocery chain in the amount of $390.42, shall participate in a mental health evaluation and any additional recommended treatment, according to the release.
Lohr was first arrested in Oct. 2018 and charged him with criminal damage. After Lohr was released from custody, he went to California. In Feb. 2019, the FBI arrested him for similarly tampering with consumer products there. He was later sentenced in Oct. 2021 to a 51-month federal prison term followed by three years of supervised release with mental health services.
