A fast-food worker has been arrested on suspicion of distributing methamphetamine from a drive-thru window, according to authorities.
Police in Skiatook, Oklahoma, said in a Post on Facebook on Tuesday that they apprehended employee Bryce Francis the day before after a customer “found a small baggy of drugs inside their bag.”
According to an arrest affidavit acquired by Tulsa Fox affiliate KOKI, the incident happened at a neighborhood Carl’s Jr. restaurant. Before cops were called, the customer who reportedly found the drugs telephoned the restaurant’s manager, who “gave him fresh food.”
When the baggy was found inside the food bag, the customer was apparently on a video chat with his girlfriend. Responding officers stated that they “learned that the baggy contained a crystalline substance,” which subsequently “field tested positive for methamphetamine.”
Soon after, officers spoke with restaurant workers and detained Francis, accusing him of possession of a controlled substance and distribution of a controlled substance within 2,000 feet of a school.
Skiatook High School is less than 2,000 feet away from the Carl’s Jr. restaurant.
Skiatook police said the crystal meth in Monday’s incident was accidentally placed in the customer’s bag, adding “#wrongbag” when asked if Francis “just handed it out” on Facebook.
“We would also like to add … if you are the person that was SUPPOSE to receive this order, it is waiting for you at the Skiatook Police Department,” police wrote in an additional comment. “Just swing on by!”
