Police arrest woman who sold heroin through East Liberty McDonald’s drive-thru window

Because illegal drugs such as heroin are so addictive, some Pennsylvanians will do anything to find and obtain it. In some cases, these illegal drugs are brought and sold in unlikely places. However, these clandestine activities are sometimes reported to law enforcement, and the drug seller is ultimately charged with a drug crime.

An East Liberty McDonald’s employee found a creative way to supplement her income; she allegedly distributed heroin to customers through the drive-thru window in Happy Meal boxes. It is unknown whether this operation was part of a larger drug-selling ring, or if the woman was acting alone. The authorities also uncovered a similar operation at a McDonald’s in Murraysville, where a 28-year-old employee was arrested, but it is unknown if the two locations have any ties.

Authorities are unable to determine how long the woman has been selling heroin through the McDonald’s drive-thru window or how much she has sold. The manager of the McDonald’s could not be reached for comment, but it is quite possible that this drug operation occurred without his knowledge or cooperation. The authorities received a tip from an informant, who later helped the officers buy heroin from the employee and arrest her.

In 2011, the woman who was arrested for selling heroin at the East Liberty McDonald’s was convicted of drug possession. Hopefully, the woman will receive treatment to recover from any drug addiction problem she may have. Anyone who is facing any type of drug charge may want to seek out drug crime defense as soon as possible. An attorney can help people in these circumstances find the best possible outcome.
