Texas Sonic Workers Busted for Spiking Kids Meal with Ecstasy
What the hell is wrong with people? Some employees, including the manager of a Sonic Drive-In location in Taylor, Texas have been fired after an ecstasy pill was found in a kids meal.
According to a published report, 30-year-old manager Tanisha Dancer, 22-year-old worker Jose Molina, and 35-year-old worker Jonathan Roberson were arrested last week when an 11-year-old opened a kids meal and saw a little blue pill inside of it. Police say the 11-year-old was opening the meal that was intended for her 4-year-old brother. The girl showed it to her parents wondering if it was candy as part of the meal. The family took the pill to police who identified it as the drug MDMA, also known as ecstasy.
According to Taylor Police Chief Henry Fluck, the restaurant's manager had an outstanding warrant for violating parole and was carrying three pills of ecstasy, the same type, size and markings as those found on the pill inside the hamburger wrapping.
Police say Dancer was first charged with Possession of Controlled Substance and later, Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and Endangering a Child. Roberson also had four outstanding warrants for theft, driving without a license, failing to appear in court, and bond forfeiture. Molina was arrested for marijuana possession.
An official statement from the Sonic restaurant chain read:
“On December 6, a foreign substance was found in a hamburger at the referenced SONIC Drive-In, which is owned and operated by an independent franchisee. The substance was discovered and removed. No guests were injured. The franchisee takes guest safety and food safety very seriously. Local police are investigating this incident, and the franchisee is cooperating with police in their investigation. Each franchise organization is an independent employer and thus responsible for its own employment-related policies, practices, and decisions. The franchisee has terminated three employees in connection with this incident. Any additional questions about this incident should be directed to police as it is SONIC’s policy and practice not to comment on matters that are the subject of ongoing investigations or proceedings."
Parents, always examine your child's restaurant food before they eat it.
