Two men in Clay County are behind bars after police say the pair were dealing drugs in front of two Manchester Police officers.
Police arrested Jesse Fields and Derrick Chadwell.
Both were charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.
Fields was charged with an additional charge of possession of marijuana.
Officials say the two officers were at the second window at McDonald’s when Fields, the manager, walked out the door in front of them and handed what appeared to them to be a pill to Chadwell, who was on a bicycle.
The two police officers got out of their unmarked car and approached them.
Chadwell allegedly threw the suspected pill on the ground.
Officials say the pill was Hydrocodone and that the pill is worth about $10 in street value.
Fields and Chadwell were taken to the Clay County Detention Center.
McDonald’s management gave us the following statement: “We are cooperating fully with police in their investigation and refer all other questions back to them.”
