PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA- Customers who used a drive through at a McDonald's in Pittsburgh could use the code words, "I'd like to order a toy" to get a heroin-laced Happy Meal.

Shantia Dennis faces drug charges and her lawyer says she's "emotionally crushed" by the accusation from police and prosecutors.

She was arrested last month after police say they caught her selling ten doses of heroin hidden inside a Happy Meal to a confidential informant.

When she was arrested, police say they found more heroin on her. She faces a preliminary hearing in April since prosecutors asked for more time to get crime lab tests finished.
