DG Thurmont Burger King

The Burger King in Thurmont.

A man accused of serving a side order of drugs at the Thurmont Burger King was sentenced to a year in jail.

Jonathan Brook Moser, 28, of Emmitsburg, pleaded guilty to distributing narcotics Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court and was ordered to serve one year in jail. He was authorized for work release.

Moser was arrested after Thurmont police began a two-month undercover investigation that started in July in response to complaints that people were selling drugs out of the Burger King on North Church Street in Thurmont.

A police officer posed as a Burger King employee during the course of the investigation, which netted 5 grams of marijuana and two morphine pills.

In addition to Moser, Tommy Lee Miller, 23, of Thurmont, was charged after the operation. He faces two counts each of marijuana distribution, possession and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

His trial is scheduled to begin March 3.

All operations can not get arrest. It is good to know when there was little activity and the use for training is valuable.
