Indiana Restaurant Closed After Customer Receives Cocaine With Cheese Sticks
A woman in Griffith, Indiana told police that she got a call from an employee of Broad Street Gyros asking if she'd return an order of cheese sticks that she'd received for free.
That's when she noticed that her take-out order had a small baggie of cocaine hidden in a foam cup. The employee who contacted her asked for her address and promised to “hook her up.”
Police searched the restaurant with a drug-detecting dog and found no drugs, but it did detect a drug presence in a few locations. The dog was interested in multiple spots like the business office and a sink in the women's bathroom.
Broad Street Gyros owner Carrie Demoff admitted to police that she “did a line and toked a few times” while at work. After the Town Council suspended the restaurant's business license, she said: “I have no idea what happened and they didn't find anything.”
So far nobody has admitted to putting cocaine in the food order and authorities plan on looking at surveillance footage.
