This story gives a new meaning to enjoying a Coke and a hot dog.
A Sonic Drive-In employee is charged with possession of a controlled substance after a bag of cocaine ended up in a customer’s hot dog order, Foxnews.com reported.
Espanola Police said in a press release that charges have been filed against 54-year-old Jeffrey David Salazar after illegal narcotics were discovered in a customer’s recent hot dog order from Sonic.
Police claimed the cocaine was mistakenly included in the order.
The woman who placed the order called police Tuesday after encountering a plastic bag while biting the hot dog, the Rio Grande Sun reported.
The woman didn’t think any of the powdered substance got into her mouth.
In the affidavit accompanying the arrest warrant, police state that Salazar was seen on video surveillance of the fast-food restaurant engaged in an “apparent hand-to-hand transaction with a female employee.”
The video shows Salazar preparing the hot dog before seemingly beginning the search “as if he’s lost something.”
The warrant states that Salazar admitted to police that he bought the cocaine from someone in the restaurant’s parking lot.
