Pittsburgh police say they have arrested a McDonald’s worker who was allegedly selling heroin in the fast food restaurant’s famed Happy Meals.

Undercover agents ran a sting operation at the restaurant Wednesday afternoon, the local CBS affiliate reports. Officers said customers looking for heroin were instructed to go through the drive-through and say, “I’d like to order a toy.” They would then be told to proceed to the first window, where they would receive a Happy Meal box containing the drugs in exchange for cash, CBS reports.

One employee was arrested in the bust. Officers do not know how long the drug-dealing operation has been going on, but they found 10 bags of heroin inside Happy Meal boxes and recovered another 50 bags from the suspect.
