Do You Want Crack With That? McDonalds Drugs Busted

McLovin McDrugs(PCM) Move over McLovin’, now there is McCrackin’.

In an upscale suburb of Philadelphia, PA a McDonalds employee wasn’t just asking if you want fries with your meal. But customers apparently were still “lovin it”.

Allen Trammell has been arrested by Radnor Police at the Mainline McDonalds holding 57 bags of crack cocaine. The police describe Trammell as a street level dealer that made his sales by word-of-mouth selling dime bags of crack.

Earning an estimated $1,500 a week, Trammell clearly didn’t need to work at McDonalds if for no other reason than to use it as location to be found.

To catch Trammell, police set up a sting operation starting back in June making four buys from Trammell. In the end Trammell was arrested in the McDonalds parking lot.

In fairness to McDonalds, Trammell didn’t work the drive through. The Radnor police do have a sense of humor on the subject. Lieutenant Andy Block is quoted, “When not working as a crew and preparing food, he was out in the rear parking log selling crack cocaine. So in a sense, it can give you a new definition of what may be considered a happy meal.”

Trammel doe have two previous drug convictions dating back to 2005 and even served prison time for his actions.

McDonalds is now becoming synonymous with drive through drugs.  Similar incidents have taken place in the past.

  • 2009 – Pittsburgh PA – Heroin
  • 2010 – Floresville TX – Pot
  • 2013 – Mequon WI – Money laundering for Drugs
  • 2014 – Pittsburgh PA – Heroin
  • 2014 – Philadelphia PA – Crack Cocaine

The local McDonalds had the same response provided when a Pittsburgh McDonalds experienced a similar incident in 2009. “No comment.”

Mayfly Mayhem on the Mississippi

Mayflies(PCM) Think the swarms of mosquitoes that plague most people over the summer are a nuisance? How about swarms of mayflies so large they cause car accidents?

The Mississippi Valley was swarmed by the recently hatched flies this weekend.

Mayflies hatch and erupt in large swarms on the Mississippi every year, but scientists say this year’s swarm is larger than in previous years.

The mayflies presence is actually a good sign for the area; it denotes a healthy river system capable of supporting life, but it definitely makes life tough on locals.

Reports were coming in from Minnesota of swarms so large that they blocked out the sun and caused poor visibility, even resulting in a 3 car accident that injured three and sent one to the hospital.

Aside from the poor visibility, the swarms of flies have been known to pose a hazard to drivers; when the flies are smashed on the road, they form a thick oily buildup resulting in poor driving conditions.

Some towns have even taken to pouring sand on the road when the mayflies hatch to provide more traction for drivers.

While they are a huge nuisance, completely covering local businesses and homes withMayflies2 their ever-buzzing selves, the mayflies almost slip into nonexistence as soon as they swarmed up.

The flies belonging to the order Ephemeroptera, whose Greek translation roughly translates into “lasting-a-day insect,” have a very short adult lifespan, ranging anywhere from a few minutes to a few days.

While locals aren’t over the moon about the mayflies arrival, experts, scientists, and those in the Department of Natural Resources are rejoicing in the healthy signs of life from the Mississippi.

Mayfly larva thrives in healthy freshwater systems, and the record numbers from this year’s hatching point to a healthy river system with healthy levels of lead and mercury, two pollutants that mayfly larva are highly sensitive too.

This year’s large swarms are also good news for someone else; the hungry fish in the Mississippi and local waterways. The mayflies provide a nice source of protein and nutrients for the fish, making a nice meal that will hopefully support and help grow local fish populations.

Your Face On Toast For Breakfast?

face-toast1

(PCM) Talk about a breakfast of champions…well…at least some people might think so!  A Vermont company has created the first “selfie” toaster, so now you can enjoy chowing down on your face (or someone else’s) for breakfast in the morning.

Burnt Impressions (gotta love the name) is selling the “selfie” toaster for $75, which may be a little on the expensive side for some, but how can you put a price tag your own likeness created on food?!?

The company is even willing to thrown in a free decal sticker of the image you choose for your toast design, so you can display it proudly in your kitchen!  Burnt Impressions also happens to be the same company that brought us the Jesus and Rapture toasters as well!
