Worthington KFC Part Of Drug Investigation

May 2, 2012, 10:17 PM by Kelly Bartnick

Worthington KFC Part Of Drug Investigation
WORTHINGTON, MN -

Authorities in southwest Minnesota believe drugs were on the menu at a Worthington restaurant. Police searched the Worthington KFC and an apartment in the city Wednesday morning. Authorities made five arrests, seized pot, cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

"It was in the morning. She looked out the window and she saw a lot of police surrounding the place, and they blocked off the road. They were there for four to five hours." neighbor Marissa Enriquez said.

Enriquez and her family live across from the Sherwood Street apartment complex where the arrests were made. A drug task force says a tip about an operation at KFC led to the investigation. The restaurant's general manager requested anonymity, but said police barricaded the parking lot before he arrived into work Wednesday.

"From the officers and the search warrant it was because of drug sales and possession. They searched the premises for the substance. They didn't find anything, but it doesn't mean it wasn't going on," he said.

The manager had been on the job for just under a month and says he did not know about the drugs. One of the men arrested was a KFC shift supervisor. The restaurant fired him. Police also questioned several other employees.

"I've seen some of 'em," the manager said. "I haven't heard from some of 'em.  So I don't know exactly what's going on."

Police say two of the men arrested worked at KFC, which was back open in time for dinner Wednesday night. The apartment across town remained quiet.

"Usually at 2 a.m.; they're always yelling and screaming and it always wakes us up," Enriquez said.

The suspects' names have not been released. They were arrested on suspicion of a controlled substance which carries a penalty for up to five years.
