article imageMcDonald's employee accused of selling heroin in Happy Meals

By Scott Tuttle     Jan 29, 2014 in Odd News
Pittsburgh - A McDonald's employee in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was arrested Wednesday and charged with selling heroin in the Happy Meals from the drive-thru window.
When officials were given the tip that an employee was selling the drug at the East Liberty restaurant on 6361 Penn Avenue, undercover agents set up a sting operation to apprehend the culprit.
According to District Attorney spokesman Mike Manko, customers looking to score heroin were asked to use the code phrase "I'd like to order a toy." They were then instructed to proceed to the first window where they would receive a Happy Meal box containing bags of the narcotic.
Agents thus set up a buy, and followed the procedure ultimately finding 26-year-old Shania Dennis at the drive-up window with 10 bags of heroin. Upon her arrest, they also seized 50 more bags set aside for future buyers.
The McDonald's employee denied any knowledge or guilt to reporters as they filmed her being handcuffed and led away by police.
The Pittsburgh incident is the second known case this month of McDonald's employees selling heroin at the workplace. Earlier this month, an employee at Murrysville in southwestern Pennsylvania was also apprehended for similar charges. So far the police have not claimed any relation between the two arrests.
