LMPD: Drive-thru manager sold drugs at Valley Station Rally's
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Burgers and fries with a side of heroin at the drive-thru -- those are the orders police say a drive-thru manager was taking.
Metro Police say Orlando Wise had two businesses in one at a Rally's on Dixie Highway in Valley Station.
Sgt. Steve Bailey is in charge of LMPD's 3rd Division Flex Unit and says Wise worked this drive-thru window but instead of spicy chicken or fish...he was selling heroin.
"We had received information that kind of confirmed that Orlando Wise had been selling narcotics at his place of employment," Bailey said. "We did confirm that he had been making some sells through the drive-thru window."
Sgt. Bailey says after watching Wise for several days, detectives moved in this week and caught him red handed.
"When we got him, he had heroin along with marijuana packaged for sale along with some cash," Bailey said. "Which we think were drug proceeds."
Wise was taken into custody at the restaurant, but police also served a warrant at his home on Grafton Hall Road where they say there was more evidence."
"We did find additional heroin which was packaged for sale at his of residence," said Bailey.
Police say Wise has a long criminal history and this is not his first time being arrested for dealing drugs.
"It goes all the way back to 1994," Bailey said.
No one from Rally's would go on camera, but a customer said he hadn't seen anything strange.
"I don't like that very much, definitely going over there and getting something to eat and he doing that stuff -- while I'm trying to get food," customer Alex Hunt said.
Orlando Wise, 40, lives with his parents, but police don't believe family members knew he was selling drugs.
