It seems it must be somewhat irresistible to use fast food as a fast way to deliver drugs to customers. In yet another tale of heroin at McDonald’s, a worker in Pennsylvania was arrested and accused of selling heroin in Happy Meals. Customers simply had to say, “I’d like to order a toy.”

Which is silly, because all Happy Meals come with toys and you don’t have to order them special. So there’s the first clue.

WPXI.com reports that the 26-year-old worker was busted after police said undercover agents were able to buy heroin from her while she was at work at McDonald’s.

Authorities say they’d gotten a tip that someone was peddling the drug and set up a controlled buy at the restaurant this week to check it out.

Drive-thru customers would simply pull up and announce their intent to buy a “toy,” and upon arriving at the first window would hand over $82 and receive a Happy meal box with the heroin inside. The second window was simply skipped.

Cops say they recovered 10 stamp bags of heroin inside one Happy Meal box and another 50 bags from the suspect.
