Three people are in custody after a Michigan child found a pipe loaded with marijuana in his Burger King kid’s meal.
Spending a hot summer’s day at a water park in Dundee, Mich. on July 16, a Detroit-area family got a little more than the usual kids’ meal items from a Burger King on Tecumseh St.
“He handed the kids’ meal that he had gotten at Burger King to his 4-year-old grandson and when they opened it up they found a loaded marijuana pipe inside the kid’s meal,” said Dundee Police Chief David Uhl.
The grandfather then went back to the restaurant to speak with a manager and police.
That’s when he noticed something suspicious involving an employee of the fast food restaurant and two other individuals.
He had seen them in the parking lot and saw them interacting with the employee, so he thought that was suspicious so he wrote down a description of the car and gave a license plate wrote it down and gave it to my officer when he arrived at the scene and my officer was able to locate those two suspects and they admitted to what was going on.”
It was the grandfather’s heads-up actions that led to the arrest of three people involved, not just the employee of this Burger King.
“It was an intricate part of the investigation and, like I said, he should be commended for what he did,” said Uhl.
Uhl said police don’t know how the pipe ended up in the kids’ meal box.
But all three suspects were issued citations for possession of drug paraphernalia. They are also facing pending charges for possession of marijuana and other possible charges.
