Mum Finds Weed On Four-Year-Old Daughter's Fries
An American mum who visited a Wendy's fast food outlet filed a police report shortly after claiming her four-year-old daughter's fries had been laced with weed.
Dezeray Risner said she ordered french fries for her daughter who said they 'tasted funny'. Risner then took pictures of the chip that she says shows there was marijuana mixed in with them.
In response, the mum called the manager of the store who said nobody at the restaurant had marijuana. So, she went to the Huber Heights Police Department to show officers what she found and to file a complaint.
Police say they opened the bag and could smell a 'strong odour 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 but, 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, but there wasn't.
A Wendy's spokesperson said: "In response to Ms. Thompson's Facebook Post, please know all of our customers as well as the quality and integrity of our food are a top priority at Wendy's and we are taking this very seriously.
We are currently conducting a thorough internal investigation and the Human Resource and Legal departments are both fully cooperating with police in their investigation. We will get to the bottom of this issue as soon as possible. It is as important to us as it is to the community."
The investigation is ongoing.
