(Meredith) – Three fast food employees have been arrested after police said an ecstasy pill was found inside a 4-year-old’s meal.

According to KXAN, the incident happened at a Sonic Drive-in in Taylor, Texas. The pill was found after a couple’s 11-year-old daughter unwrapped her 4-year-old brother’s burger and saw the pill.

At first, the girl thought it was candy, but the parents, suspecting it might be an illegal drug, drove to the police station. Officers tested the pill and it came back positive as ecstasy.

Police went to the fast food restaurant and arrested three employees, including the manager, Tanisha Dancer, who has since been fired, according to First Coast News. When she arrived at the jail, police said they found three more pills on her person. Another employee, Jose Molia, was arrested on possession of marijuana charges, while the third worker, Jonathan Roberson, was arrested on four outstanding warrants.

After the three were in custody, authorities alerted Sonic’s corporate office, the restaurant’s local owner the Department of Health.
