(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.

I knew McDonalds through their diversity programs had started awarding conditional unit deeds to people of questionable immigration papers. It was necessary as most of their units especially in the south are operated by people who have only been in the USA weeks at best. But this is really a strange move for them to pull off. I sometimes wonder if McDonalds as a corporation has a death wish.

Must have been small amounts at $80 each! The manager wondered why she sold so many Happy meals and always wanted to work the drive thru. :) But I have to give her credit on finding away to supplement her McD's pay!
