Reports say customers looking for drugs would say “I’d like to order a toy,” at the drive-thru. Then, after paying, they would receive a Happy Meal box containing heroin.
Undercover officers recovered 10 stamp bags of heroin, plus a Sponge Bob toy, within a Happy Meal Box, according to a statement from the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office. Officers immediately arrested McDonald’s employee, 26-year-old Shantia Dennis.
Dennis is charged with two counts of possession, one count of criminal use of communication facility, one count of prohibited acts of delivery and one count of possession with intent to deliver.
According to WPXI of Pittsburgh, this is the second McDonald’s worker in two weeks to be arrested for allegedly selling heroin while working at the burger franchise.
