PITTSBURGH - An employee of a McDonald's restaurant in Pittsburgh is charged with selling heroin in Happy Meals.
Investigators in Allegheny County district attorney's office received a tip that an employee was selling heroin at a McDonald's in the East Liberty section of the city.
Officers said customers looking for heroin were told to go through the drive-thru and say "I'd like to order a toy." The customer would then be told to drive to a window, where they'd hand over their money and get a Happy Meal box containing heroin in exchange.
Undercover agents on Wednesday set up a fake drug buy and arrested employee Shania Dennis of East Pittsburgh.
Dennis, 26, denied wrongdoing to reporters as she was being led away in handcuffs.
Authorities said they found 10 bags of heroin in a Happy Meal box and recovered another 50 bags from the suspect.
Another McDonald's employee was arrested this month for selling heroin out of a restaurant in nearby Murrysville.
Pennsylvania driver's licenses that are compliant with tougher federal anti-terrorism standards should be available in early 2019, according to Gov. Tom Wolf's office.Read More »
