Restaurant Owner Arrested After Serving Cocaine Instead Of Cheese Sticks

This is the moment a take-away restaurant owner in Griffith, Indiana, USA hits the roof after realising her cocaine has accidentally been mixed up with a customer's cheese sticks order. Easy mistake to make, right? Well, er, no, not really.

The clip was recovered from CCTV footage by the Griffith Police Department and shows business owner Carrie Demoff, who is now facing felony charges, storming around Broad Street Gyros, shouting at her colleague who has mistakenly given a customer a Stryofoam cup containing cocaine, rather than the cheese sticks that were ordered.

Unfortunately for Demoff, the recipient of the grade-A cheese sticks was not a grateful, recreational drug user, but rather an angry woman who didn't take kindly to illicit powders - complimentary or otherwise - in her take-away meals.

The confusion began when Demoff, 50, dropped an object - later found to be cocaine - into a white container with a lid.

Her colleague then accidentally packs the cup into a take-away order for a waiting customer who takes her bag and leaves.

A few minutes later, Demoff can be seen getting visibly irate and shouting at her co-worker, presumably because she can't find her cocaine. Well, to be fair, it wasn't exactly the best place to leave it, was it?

Rather than calling her mates and hitting the nearest bar, the customer who received the accidental cocaine order headed straight to the police station to report what had happened and Demoff was later arrested.

She has now been charged with possession and attempted dealing of cocaine. Her business closed the next day.

Mainly due to the increased violence surrounding cocaine trafficking, distribution, and use in the area, Indiana authorities crack down heavily on both the sale and possession of cocaine.

Possession of cocaine in Indiana carries a minimum sentence of two years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000 (£7,032).
