Want fries with that coke?
The night shift manager at a Bronx McDonaldâ€™s has been busted for serving up cocaine with fast food, prosecutors said Wednesday
Frank Guerrero, 26, worked at the 24-hour McDonald’s on Bruckner Blvd. by Morrison Ave. in Soundview for eight years. During that time, he often unlocked the doors to sell drugs in the middle of the night, prosecutors said.
Cops and federal authorities got a tip about the scheme and ordered up eight super-sized drug buys “in increasingly larger quantities,” before arresting him Wednesday morning.
Guerrero stashed the cocaine on a soap dispenser in the restaurant’s bathroom before his shift started, and peddled cocaine and crack with the burgers he sold, authorities said.
Twice, he sold the drugs to an undercover officer at the counter, shoving the contraband in a cookie bag, which he stuffed alongside two cheeseburgers, a soda and fries, prosecutors said.
He made the deal under the noses of the other employees at the burger joint, prosecutors said.
“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. “Ordering coke took on an entirely different meaning on the night shift at this McDonald’s.”
Guerrero sold the undercover cop nearly $10,900 in drugs.
When police raided his Throgs Neck home, they found 200 grams of cocaine and $5,300 in cash, prosecutors said.
He hid the drug money in a dresser inside his 2-year-old sonâ€™s playroom. The child was there when Guerrero and his girlfriend, Leidy Cabral Castillo, 24, were arrested.
