Police: Wendy’s employee drops pot in burger

A former Wendy’s employee gave the term “burger joint” a new meaning last month after allegedly dropping her marijuana in a hamburger.

Police arrested 32-year-old Amy Seiber and charged her with possession of less than an ounce of pot for the Nov. 1 offense, authorities said.

About 10:30 p.m. that night, Lovejoy police Lt. Michael Gaddis said a woman ordered a Wendy’s single from the drive-through of the 11121 Tara Boulevard location.

“Upon arrival at home, she took her food out of the bag and noticed a strange odor in her hamburger,” Gaddis said. “When she opened it, she discovered a partially smoked marijuana cigarette.”

The woman took the burger and her receipt back to the restaurant and reported it to the manager and called police.

“They were able to speak with the suspect, who admitted that she was responsible,” Gaddis said. “She had been smoking while she worked. When she was fixing the burger, part of the marijuana fell into the burger.”

Seiber was arrested and fired, according to reports. She was able to bond out of the Clayton County Jail, police said.
