A mother in England made a gruesome find, discovering a bloody heroin needle in a loaf of bread.
The woman in Manchester was making her 10-year-old a sandwich when she found the used needle pushed through the loaf's plastic wrapper, The Telegraph reported.
She called authorities, who used DNA technology to link the syringe to 61-year-old David Rodgers.
Rodgers, of Salford, pleaded guilty this week to contaminating the bread with intent to cause public alarm, The Daily Mail reported.
He said he hid the heroin needle in the bread after getting high in December to keep his wife from finding out he was using the drug again.
