Sheriff's Office Investigating McDonald's Employee Tampering With Cop's Food

McDonald's and the Marion County Sheriff's Office are investigating who took a bite from an officer's to-go order.

Indianapolis, IN – A McDonald’s in Indiana in investigating after a local law enforcement officer was served a McChicken sandwich that had a bite already taken out of it.

The customer, who is a local police officer, told WTHR that he’s a regular at the McDonald’s located on West Morris Street and Holt Road on the west side of Indianapolis.

The officer said he stopped at the fast food restaurant and ordered a McChicken sandwich, a small fry, and some chocolate chip cookies.

But when he got to work and went to heat up his sandwich before eating, much to his surprise he found that somebody had already taken at least one bite out of his McChicken, WTHR reported.

"I started to warm up my McChicken and I noticed several small bites,” the officer explained. “I know I didn't eat it. No one else was around. I said, 'You know what? I am going to the McDonald's to see if they can get that taken care of.”

There has been a rash of food service employees tampering with and doing disgusting things to the meals ordered by law enforcement officers over the past two years and most cops have learned to check carefully before eating, just like this officer did.

"I went to the McDonald's and talked to the supervisor,” the officer said. “She offered me some free food I didn't care anything about. I just wanted to find out who the person was and they deal with that person in an appropriate way."

McDonald’s told WTHR that the tampering was an isolated incident and that they were investigating who was working on the food line when the police officer ordered his meal.

Blue Lives Matter reached out to McDonald’s corporate headquarters for comment several days after the incident occurred and received a statement on behalf of the franchisee.

“We take all claims seriously and are fully cooperating with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in their investigation. We are committed to offering our customers safe, high-quality food,” McDonald’s Owner/Operator Randy Shields said.

Update: The Marion County Sheriff's Office contacted Blue Lives Matter on July 26 to notify us that their investigation had determined that the officer had actually taken a bite out of his own sandwich before he put in the fridge, but forgotten about it.

Who ever did this should sued for taking the LEOs slogan " TAKEING A BITE OUT OF CRIME '

Should be a criminal offense. If it was really a bite taken out a DNA test would tell you who it was.

The same type thing happened to a coworker of mine back years ago, the only difference is we caught an employee spitting on the inside of his burger.

Lastly this is why I totally disagree with taking there wages up to $15.00 a hour. I know there are some hardworking employees in fast food and they deserve a raise but the bad ones makes it’s bad for the rest of the employees.

It's not just LEO. I was a Public Health RN , who made home visits as well as staffed a satellite Health Access Center. I was told by several of my black patients to not eat at the local fast food restaurants that were located in or around the hood , because as a white person, my food would be tainted. My question is why do those we are trying to help try to hurt us? As an RN who would take after hours call, I went everywhere you guys go, armed only with a stethoscope and a phone as my agency passed a no weapons policy. One day, while hiding under my car as there was another OK Coral event unfolding around me, I made my decision to retire. I was tired of paying for bullet hole repairs to my car( no company vehicle) and having nightmares from too many close encounters. On the flip side, I made a lot of LEO friends and have a deep respect and admiration for you to go into the hood day after day. A big Thank-you to those who would look out for me on the streets.

How do they know it was an "isolated incident?" Taking a bite out of ANYTHING is at the TOP of the tampering list..how long have they been doing and getting away with this garbage? Check DNA..find out who perpetrated this CRIME! Obviously, McD, you are NOT "committed to offering" your customers "safe, high-quality food."

McDonald's employees aren't taking a "bite out of crime"... They're committing the crime.

Do you know what would get the point across? Napalm (it means fire) the entire crew. That will get the message across. I'm tired of hearing how members of law enforcement are treated, because of how they are portrayed on regular and social media. What really ticks me off even more is that these are the same people who would be crying for help from the police the moment something goes wrong. Then, and only then, will they understand how thin the blue line truly is.

My daughter who had just gotten off work, went to our local Arby's, ordered a sandwich, and the counter person, dropped the bag with the food in it on the floor, the sandwich falling out of the wrapper onto the dirty floor. The girl, picked it up, re-wrapped it, in the same wrapper, and put it back inside the bag, handing it to my daughter, who told the girl to please make a new one, and she did, but my daughter, never went back there again. If a regular restaurant did this, the Health Dept would shut it down. This of course, just an 'incident', but I think, all the other cases I hear about, involving cops as customers, getting their food orders tampered with at Fast Food restaurants, is definitely, intentional, and should be SHUT DOWN!

Don’t get too worked up about it being a cop. They have no idea when it’s a cop st the drive through.

They do it to everybody. Had a friend in high school who worked at a fast food place and he said some days the would mess with every drive through order.

This isn’t anti cop. It’s a bunch of immature, bored idiots.

I hope one day they get poisoned to death not just fucking taking a bite out of their sandwich just like that loser up and commented saying that some workers are good and deserve a raise but the bad ones ruin it for all of that same thing applies to the fucking cops some of them are good but most of them are fucked up and bad and deserve a lot more than a bite taken out of a sandwich more like some drops of poison put in their two sandwich which will blend in a lot better anyways. Fucking bunch of power tripping fags.

I had this happen to me but instead of a bite, he spit in it. Dummy wasn't smart enough to get out of my line of sight when he did it. He wound up getting fired, 6 months in jail, and 2,000 dollar fine.

It's real simple to solve, get officer's receipt, and check the video at the time he was served. Even without receipt, most McDonald's have video cameras nearly everywhere, except in bathrooms. Also, most cops get discounted orders, so it would be easy to look up time on that day's receipt log.

90 % of fast food franchises don't and will not drug screen test because if they made it mandatory they could not scrape up enough employees to even open the front doors every morning so what does this mean?eat at your own risk.it's going to take heavy incarsaration and strict regulations and 120% accountability from company's/parents/guardian.law suits maybe the answer.JGB

If that is an actual photo of the sandwich I’d wait for the full story before condemning this McDonald’s. I worked at a McDonald’s for many years before joining law enforcement and to me this looks like the bun toaster ripped a piece of the bun off (happens frequently) and they decided to use it anyway. There is no bite taken out of the chicken itself, and probably nothing taken out of the top bun, which makes me seriously doubt someone did this on purpose.

Just a little update to this story. McDonald's checked the security camera footage from the time the cop received his food and found that no employees tampered with his sandwich. What did they find you ask? They found footage of this lying piece of shit taking a bite of his own sandwich then putting it back in the wrapper. When asked about it, he conveniently doesn't remember doing it. This is who we trust to do the right thing in our community. Fucking disgraceful

As usual the cop lied and has now fessed up. Check the updated reports. Especially all you WaWaWa cops. Truth doesn't come easy to you we always see!

Your right. They should bring their stuff with them to another line of work like holding a bus bench down rain,sleet or snow. So much of what they say is snow. Google and YouTube "Cops lying". Misconduct too.
