(Newser) – A burger, fries, a toy—all things you'd expect to find in a McDonald's Happy Meal. But heroin? That's not usually on the menu. Police in the Pittsburgh area said yesterday they caught 26-year-old Shania Dennis distributing heroin through her job at a McDonald's drive-thru during an undercover sting operation. How? She allegedly told customers to order a toy; instead, at the first window, they'd get a Happy Meal box full of heroin. According to police, Dennis was found with 50 bags of heroin, including 10 bags in a Happy Meal box. Officers said she asked for $2 for the meal and $80 for the drugs.
