The Smoking Gun reports that an employee at a McDonald’s restaurant in Murrysville, Pa., was busted last Wednesday for allegedly selling heroin while on the job. Theodore Levon Upshaw, 28, recently served time in prison on a narcotics charge, which, with his most recent arrest, makes him a two-time loser.

Upshaw was taken into police custody after selling “20 stamp bags of heroin” to a confidential informant. He was booked on several felony narcotics charges, including heroin possession and delivery of heroin. He is currently being held in the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.

While last week’s transaction took place in the restaurant’s parking lot, during one of Upshaw’s work breaks, the informant “previously made multiple purchases of heroin” inside the establishment.

Upshaw has been living in an alternative housing facility since his early release from state prison, where he was serving three years on a conviction for possession with intent to deliver narcotics. Because he is on parole for that conviction, a detainer has been entered for alleged violations of his terms of supervision.
