Man Tries To Trade Marijuana For Burgers At McDonald’s



​Police in Florida said a McDonald’s customer who ran short of cash tried to pay for his cheeseburgers with marijuana and prescription drugs.

Oh, and dude was in a car he’d just stolen, too.

Alexander Lemke, 20, of Palm Harbor, Fla., must have had a king-hell case of the munchies.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office claims Lemke broke into a neighbor’s home at about 1:25 a.m. on Friday and left in their 2005 Toyota Solara, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

Pinellas County Jail
Alexander M. Lemke stole a car to go to McDonald’s drive-through, where he tried to trade marijuana and pills for cheeseburgers. Nice plan, Alex.

​​Then, he headed over to Mickey D’s drive-through window, where he tried to trade marijuana and prescription pills for the burgers, deputies claimed.
Police were quickly called, and Lemke was arrested at McDonald’s at 1:40 a.m.
Deputies claimed they found “a collection of drugs” in the center console of the car.
Lemke was charged with grand theft auto, driving with license suspended or revoked, and eight(!) drug-related charges.
He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on Friday evening in lieu of $18,550 bail.
