(ST LOUIS, Missouri) -- A restaurant cook was arrested after allegedly putting marijuana in a breakfast taquito sold to a police officer.

Benjamin Roberts, 18, was charged with possession and delivery of marijuana and released on $ 2,000 bail Thursday. He could get up to six months in jail and a $ 2,000 fine.

An officer ordered the tortilla-wrapped egg items from a Whataburger restaurant for dispatchers back at the department. One of the dispatchers noticed that marijuana had been rolled into her taquito before she took a bite. The cook was fired.

"There are mirrors there, so this guy making the food knew he was giving it to an officer," Carroll said.
