McDonald's Heroin Happy Meal Scandal: Employee Busted Dealing Out of Drive-Thru

by at .  Updated at .

You want fries and a vial of heroin with that? A Pittsburgh McDonald's employee was arrested for dealing the drug using Happy Meal boxes, according to reports.

People would roll up to the drive-thru window and use the code phrase, "I'd like to order a toy," at which point the accused employee would hook them up.

Customers more in the mood for hard drugs than Big Macs were allegedly instructed to order this way, then pick up their "order" at the next window.

Undercover officers from a local narcotics enforcement team made a buy from the accused employee after being tipped off by an informant, officials said.

DA spokesman Mike Manko told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that undercover officers bought 10 bags of heroin in stamp-sized packets from the location.

Another 50 bags were found on the employee's person after making the buy.

The accused employee is 26-year-old Shantia Dennis of East Pittsburgh. The McDonald's in question is reportedly located in the city's East Liberty area.

Both McDonald's and the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office did not immediately return requests for comment on the Happy Meal heroin scandal.

It's unclear how long heroin had been available at McDonald's, or if you still got the Happy Meal toy, or what kind of markup Shantia was factoring in.

It has also not been established if you could purchase Medium, Large and Extra Large packets of smack, even if you really only wanted a small size.

Seriously. Sometimes you just don't need a jumbo Diet Coke/bindle. Stop trying to manipulate us into buying more than we want, corporate fast food pimps!
