Three fast food employees were arrested after a family found something very disturbing in their son's meal.

The arrests were made from the Sonic's Drive-In in Taylor, Texas.

A family was getting ready to eat their meal when the 11-year-old daughter noted what looked like a candy in the wrapper of the hamburger of her 4-year-old brother.

Taylor Chief of Police Henry Fluck explained what happened next at a press conference.

"When she opened the wrapping, she noticed a pill," Fluck explained. "Being an 11-year-old, she asked her parents if this was candy."

Instead, the family took the meal to the police. After the pill was tested, it was discovered to be ecstasy, an illegal drug that acts as a stimulant and a psychedelic.

Police arrested 30-year-old Tanisha Dancer, the manager of the fast food restaurant, and also two of her co-workers, 35-year-old Jonathan Roberson and 22-year-old Jose Molina.

When Dancer was booked by corrections officers, she was found to be in possession of three more of the ecstasy pills that were hidden in her clothing.

She also was wanted for a warrant on a parole violation.

Dancer was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and endangering a child.

"This is an unusual incident," said Fluck to KVUE. "It seems like they didn't do a good job of vetting their employees very well."

Dancer has been fired from the Taylor Sonic Drive-In.

Here's a local news video on the arrests:

Police say there is no further danger to the public.
