In what can only be described as an act of a terror a woman opened up a half gallon of Blue Bell ice cream (the best ice cream in the country), licked it, and returned it to the freezer of a WalMart in Lufkin, Texas.

The video went viral and now police believe they’ve identified the ice cream defiler and plan to press charges, serious charges at that.

From local news:

Police think they have identified the culprit behind a video of a customer licking ice cream and putting it back in a store freezer, and she will face charges, according to Lufkin police.

The video appears to show a woman opening a 64 oz ice cream container at a grocery store, licking it and putting it back on the shelf.

Police in Lufkin, Texas, report the video hit social media on Friday, prompting officers to launch an investigation into stores from San Antonio to Houston and finally Lufkin.

After an unsuccessful police search, Blue Bell corporate asked all division managers to see if they could match the freezer in the video to one at a store.

Within an hour, a Lufkin division manager said a Lufkin Walmart matched.

At 1:10 p.m. Wednesday, Blue Bell told police they had found what they believe was the licked ice cream and removed it and all half gallons of “Tin Roof” Blue Bell ice cream from the freezer.

Surveillance video puts the culprit at the store at 11 p.m. June 28.

Police now say they have identified the woman in the viral video, and Lufkin Director of Public Safety Gerald Williamson said “appropriate charges will be filed.”

“This type of incident will not be tolerated,” Blue Bell told WAFB. “Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers.”
