In an interesting case that has captured the nation's attention, a
Pennsylvania woman is facing
drug charges after supposedly selling drugs through the drive-thru window at McDonald's.
The woman is said to have exchanged individual packets of heroin in exchange
for money, all concealed in Happy Meal bags. The accused worker was arrested
and faces drug charges after allegedly selling drugs from the drive-thru
to an informant.
According to what police have determined, people would come through the
drive-thru after calling the woman and saying a specific series of words.
This would indicate that they wanted to buy drugs. At the time that she
was arrested, the worker was found with as many as 50 single doses of
heroin in her purse. She supposedly sold 10 single heroin doses to the
informant before her arrest.
Police have carefully investigated the source of the drugs. It does not
appear that the woman was selling drugs from a tainted heroin source that
has led to several deaths around Pennsylvania. However, she was also caught
with marijuana in her purse at the time she was taken into custody.
An attorney for the woman has stated that she is very upset by the arrest.
She still has the right to defend herself against the drug charges. The
legal process allows her to build a criminal defense and to call into
question issues, such as the search of her personal belongings and the
lab tests of the drugs. It has been indicated that she is working with
her attorney on a defense strategy.
