Investigation Nabs Three for Allegedly Trying to Steal Coke Secrets

Group allegedly attempted sale of classified information and products to Pepsi


Video surveillance showed Williams at her desk at Coke headquarters going through multiple files looking for documents and stuffing them into bags. She also was observed holding a liquid container with a white label, which resembled the description of a new Coca-Cola product sample, before placing it into her personal bag, prosecutors say, adding that Coca-Cola later verified the sample was genuine and is a product the company is developing.
