RADNOR, Pa., July 23 (UPI) -- An employee at a McDonald's on Philadelphia's Main Line had a side business dealing drugs in the parking lot, police say.

Allen Trammell, 29, of Philadelphia allegedly sold crack to undercover police officers four times at the Radnor, Pa., restaurant. After the final sale, he was arrested and his money and drugs were confiscated, police said.

"When not working as a crew and preparing food, he was out in the rear parking lot selling crack cocaine -- new definition of what may be considered a Happy Meal," Radnor Police Lt. Andy Block said.

Trammell, who had worked at the restaurant in the upmarket suburb for two years, may have been making as much as $1,500 a week selling drugs, Block said. Police said they found 157 dime bags of crack when they arrested him Tuesday.

Trammell was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
