One South Carolina college student is in trouble after allegedly spitting and spraying windex on her roommates' food.

Kristen Schweighoefer, director of the Washtenaw County Environmental Health Department, says people still need to remain vigilant.

"Keep an eye out for people who perhaps are entering or exiting through the wrong doors, hanging around exposed food for long periods of time, that are loitering or just being suspicious," Schewighoefer says. "Again, if you see something - say something."
