Meet Anthony Garcia, 31, aka The “Sperminator”. Garcia was arrested at his job working as a grocery clerk in New Mexico after he was accused of depositing his bodily fluids in food samples.
A 28 year old New Mexico woman was grocery shopping last January when Garcia, who worked in the store’s dairy department, approached her with a yogurt sample.
After ingesting a spoonful of the free sample, the woman immediately thought it tasted “gross and disgusting” and said, “it tasted like ‘semen.’”

In her handwritten statement, the woman said, “I spit it out on the floor many times cuz I was upset.” The woman recalled that when she talked to the store manager Catherine Flores, “she told me was a Greek yoghurt. People love it has lot of protein on it.”
The woman paid for her groceries and returned home, where she told her boyfriend about the incident. She told him how Garcia had “just come with one sample just for me,” and that “he was so pushy to tell me how taste it.” The woman and her boyfriend took her suspicions (and what was left of the yogurt sample) to the New Mexico police department, who ran tests on the sample.
When police arrived at Sunflower Farmers Market to investigate the January 25th incident, they arrested Garcia on the spot after determining he was the subject of two outstanding warrants connected to a 2009 bust for criminal sexual contact with a minor.
The January 28 warrant notes that the samples were needed to “make sure Mr. Garcia does not have any illness or disease that could harm” the victim, whose name was redacted from court documents due to the nature of the incident.
An Albuquerque Police Department spokesperson said today that blood and DNA samples have been collected from the incarcerated Garcia, and that results from lab tests are expected later this week.
