Making a “happy meal” for customers a manager of one of the McDonald’s at Bronx sold cocaine with the fast food according to reports by NY Daily News. The news came to light on Wednesday when the 26-year old manager who worked at Bruckner Blvd. by Morrison Ave. in Soundview was arrested.
Cops Posed As Customers
The cops and federal authorities, after getting a tip of the manager selling drugs posed as customers. They asked for eight super-sized cocaine purchases in large quantities before arresting him. The manager Frank Guerrero has been working at the outlet for eight years and used to stash the drugs on the soap dispenser in the restaurant bathroom before starting his shift.
He in fact, sold the drug twice to an undercover officer by hiding the contraband between two cheeseburgers, soda and fries in a cookie bag. “Guerrero’s conduct was so blatant, it would be comical if he weren’t committing a serious narcotics crime,” said Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan to NY Daily News. “Ordering coke took on an entirely different meaning on the night shift at this McDonald’s.”
Guerrero sold the drugs without any of the staff knowing about it. He sold the undercover cop drugs worth $10,900 and on raiding his home at Throgs Neck, the police found 200 grams of cocaine and $5,300 of cash. The drug money was found hidden inside the dresser of his 2-year old son’s playroom. The police has arrested Guerrero along with his 24-year old girlfriend, Leidy Cabral Castillo.
