Sonic Manager Arrested For Cooking Meth At Work

Last week, police arrested a shift manager at a Sonic in Cape Girardeau, MO–it’s about halfway between St. Louis and Memphis, TN–after they found him with a big pile of meth supplies in the restaurant. According to Slashfood, he’d come back after the place was closed and tripped the burglar alarm. When police showed up at 1:57 AM they found the man in his Sonic uniform “allegedly attempting to whip up a batch of meth.”

The restaurant was closed the next day for cleaning, but it’s now open for business again.

By the way, if you’re planning on visiting a Sonic today, please don’t confuse an officer with a Sonic employee and try to hand her a $20 bill repeatedly. The officer will not let it slide just because you’re high out of your mind.
