A former employee of a pizza supply company was arrested Sunday in New Hampshire after razor blades were found in pizza dough sold at a Maine grocery store, authorities said.
The man, Nicholas Mitchell, 38, faces charges of being a fugitive after surveillance video recorded him inside the Hannaford Supermarket in Saco, south of Portland, Saco Deputy Police Chief Corey Huntress said.
The grocery store contacted authorities Oct. 6 after a customer found razor blades in dough that had been bought from the store, police said in a statement.
Mitchell was taken into custody in Dover, about 45 minutes south of Saco, the department said.
In a statement Monday, Mike White, the CEO of the supply company, It’ll Be Pizza, described Mitchell as a former employee. White said Hannaford Supermarket — which has locations throughout Maine — issued a recall for the brand of dough that Mitchell is accused of
