Dunkin’ Donuts Worker Arrested for Selling Drugs on the Job

America runs from crime on Dunkin’.

Police in Denver, Pa. recently arrested Nathan Pizzardi, 35, for selling drugs while he worked his shifts at a Dunkin’ Donuts.

Pizzardi, who is looking at two counts of felony drug delivery charges, proved to be an enterprising soul because in addition to his job peddling chocolate glazed doughnuts and iced coffee, he also sold heroin and meth, with some of his deals taking place in the parking lot.

“We found that he would stay in his uniform, even his headpiece from the drive-through window at Dunkin’ Donuts, he wore when he went out to his personal vehicle and made the transactions,” said a Lancaster County District Attorney’s office spokesman Brett Hambright.

Wow, he kept his headpiece on. That’s dedication. Or stupidity. Or desperation. Or maybe a combination of all three.

Police got wind of Pizzardi’s side hustle after receiving a tip about suspicious activity a few months back (whether that involves a bent spoon being served with coffee isn’t clear). Detectives watched as he would conduct his business.

And while it may sound like someone selling drugs while working at a Dunkin’ Donuts is weird, it actually makes sense, since dealers often multi-task.

“Many of them do have actual jobs, actual employment and the fact that the two came together here…It’s surprising but I don’t think anything should totally shock us,” said Hambright.
