HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – A mother who visited a local Wendy’s says she filed a police report shortly after leaving the fast-food chain after her daughter found marijuana on her french fries.
Dezeray Risner said she ordered french fries for her 4-year-old daughter who said the french fries they ordered “tasted funny,” according to a police report.
Risner told police she called the manager of the store who said nobody at the restaurant had marijuana. Then Risner went to the Huber Heights Police Department to show officers what she found and file a complaint.
Risner took pictures of the french fires that she says show the marijuana in the fries she fed to her child.
The incident happened at the Wendy’s at 7435 Brandt Pike on Tuesday around 5 p.m.
Police say they opened the bag and smelled a “strong odor of marijuana” and saw a “green leafy vegetation” on the fries.
Officials say they then went to the Wendy’s and spoke with employees and the shift manager. Two employees admitted they smoke marijuana, according to the report.
After consented searches, officials say they did not find any marijuana at the store.
The officer asked the manager if there was surveillance footage that shows the food prep area, according to the report the manager said no.
The investigation is ongoing.
Wendy’s sent a response to the reported incident Wednesday.
