EPPING, N.H. (AP/WGME) — Police say a Burger King manager and employee in New Hampshire have been arrested on drug charges after authorities were tipped off that drive-thru customers asked for “Nasty Boy” and extra crispy fries to get some marijuana with their meal.

Epping Police Chief Mike Wallace said 20-year-old Garrett Norris was arrested Saturday after police conducted a sting operation. Also arrested was 19-year-old Meagan Dearborn, the shift manager.

Police said buyers would pull up to the drive-thru and ask if “Nasty Boy” was working, Norris’ nickname, according to Seacoastonline.com.

When confirmed, an order was placed for french fries “extra crispy,” which was the code for wanting to purchase marijuana, Seacoastonline.com reported.

Wallace said the drugs weren’t put in the food; they were sold in a separate container. He said the operation didn’t involve the franchise owners.

Seacoastonline.com reports Norris was charged with sale of a controlled drug and possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute.

Dearborn was charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs and unlawful possession of alcohol, according to Seacoastonline.com.

Norris and Dearborn are scheduled for arraignment Feb. 28. It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers and phone numbers couldn’t be found for them.
