A Wendy's drive-through worker has been sentenced to 21 years in jail for selling customers child porn - if they said the key words: 'Scooby Doo'.
Juan Antonio Rosa, 36, put memory sticks of the porn in cartons of fries at one of the chain's restaurants in the North Side of San Antonio, Texas.
After taking orders for the child porn from people he met on social networking websites, he downloaded videos onto SD memory cards.
When the customers he met online would approach the drive-through window and provide the code word, he put the cards in with the fries.
He sold each card, which contained between two and five videos, for $50, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The child porn was found on Rosa's computers during a raid on his apartment in Converse in July 2011.
He confessed to downloading the child porn and selling it at Wendy's, where he had worked since leaving jail in 2010.
'He said, "It's not for me. I'm just trying to make some money off of it",' Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Thompson told the judge.
Rosa apologised to his family, including two young daughters, for his conduct before the judge handed him a 262-month sentence.
A spokesperson for Wendy's said they had no knowledge of the incident.
In another case in the same court, Ernest Zapata Sr., 58,was sentenced to 51 years in prison for selling heroin on hearing another key word.
Customers asked for 'chiva' at Anna's Cafe in San Antonio, which he runs with his wife. Rather than getting goat meat, they would be served drugs.
Authorities believe the operation had been underway for five years...
