Pregnant Employee Handed Fentanyl in Money at Drive-Thru Restaurant
Erric Stack from Oxford was taken into custody following a call to police reporting the drive-thru worker got powder on her hands and on the counter. Police said the powder was “tested and identified as fentanyl.” Officers had also received reports that Stack was nodding off in the drive-thru.
Drive-Thru Worker Felt Ill
Stack was given his order and left the restaurant. Shortly after, the employee who was handed the money with fentanyl began to feel ill. Oxford Police Chief Rickie Jack said, “This was especially concerning since she was pregnant.”
Employee Examined by Medical Personnel
The woman was examined by medical professionals and “was found to have no lasting health concerns,” according to police.
Stack was later located and arrested. He is facing several charges including aggravated assault, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon/substance, and possession of a schedule W drug, according to WGME News.
Jail and Bail
He is being held on $1,000 bail at the Oxford County Jail.
