CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The man accused of spraying what appeared to be feces produce at a West Ashley grocery store, is facing a new charge.
Authorities say Pau Hang, 41, showed up illegally at the Harris Teeter on Savannah Highway Sunday, October 15. Police say the manager saw Hang empty a bottle with a brown liquid and a bad odor like feces on the produce. He estimated it would cost at least $3,000 to throw away the produce and clean the cases.
Bond was set at just a little more than $100,000 for his trespassing charge.
On Friday, October 20, he was charged with tampering with food products. He was given another $100,000 bond for that charge.
Hang been charged with trespassing at the same West Ashley store at least eight other times before.
