A McDonald's manager was arrested early Wednesday after he was caught serving customers a side of cocaine with their burgers and fries.

Frank Guerrero, 26, was captured by authorities after they received a tip on the suspicious matter and sent an undercover cop to the fast food joint located on Bruckner Boulevard in Soundview, Bronx, according to Daily Mail.

Authorities said Guerrero sold eight quantities of the drug to the undercover cop, including $10,900 ($15,317) worth of cocaine in one instance and 100 grams of crack cocaine worth up to $6,520 ($9,162) in another, according to ABC 7 New York.

Guerrero reportedly stuffed the drugs inside the bathroom's soap dispenser until clients arrived to purchase them from him.

Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan said in a statement the "conduct was so blatant it would be comical if he weren't committing a serious narcotics crime".

She added: "Ordering coke took on an entirely different meaning on the night shift at this McDonald's."

Guerro worked at the Bronx McDonald's for about eight years before he was sacked following his night shift Wednesday when authorities found evidence through surveillance that the drug sales were going on for three months.

Afterward, a search warrant was conducted at his Bronx home where "200 grams of cocaine and $5,300 ($7,448) in cash" were seized, the New York Post reported.

At the time of the search, police also arrested the dealer's girlfriend Leidy Cabral Castillo, 24, in front of the couple's toddler son.

The money from the drugs was located inside the child's dresser.

The dealer and his partner face charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawfully dealing with a child.

The owner of the fast food restaurant issued a public statement Wednesday on the long-time employee's dismissal.

"The actions of this employee are unacceptable and will not be tolerated in my organisation," said Tony Rodriguez.

"We are cooperating with NYPD investigation and defer all further questions on this matter to them."
