SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Nearly a year after a Santa Ana bakery sold holiday bread mysteriously laced with synthetic marijuana that sickened dozens, police have closed the criminal case without making any arrests.

The Orange County Register reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/1PwMor5) that police decided to close the case after consulting with U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigators. The local and federal authorities had been trying to determine how the drug got into the Rosca de Reyes bread sold by Cholula’s Bakery.

More than 40 people complained of heart palpitations, dizziness and numbness after eating the bread in January.

The sweet bread is traditionally eaten for the Latin American holiday of Kings Day.

Officials were not able to determine the source of the contamination and said there are no further leads.



Cholula’s changed its name to D F Bakery but has kept the same ownership.
