Following a month-long undercover operation, local law enforcement officers arrested a cook at a suburban Philadelphia McDonald’s for allegedly selling cocaine, NBC Philadelphia reports.
The 29-year-old cook would reportedly leave the kitchen line to deal in the parking lot. In all, undercover officers say they purchased drugs from the man four times in the last month.
When officers returned to the restaurant this week to arrest the man they allegedly found cash and 157 dime bags of crack cocaine packets in his possession.
Officials estimate he could have been grossing as much as $1,500 per week in cocaine sales.
“When not working as a crew and preparing food, he was out in the rear parking lot selling crack cocaine so in a sense it can give you a new definition of what may be considered a Happy Meal,” one officer says.
