GRIFFITH, IN (WGN/CNN) – Some things aren’t meant to be side items.

A former Indiana business owner got in trouble with police after a customer found cocaine in her cheese stick order. Carrie Demoff now faces felony drug charges.

In surveillance video released by police, Demoff is shown in the office at Broad Street Gyros and then later in the kitchen with a small white styrofoam container.

About 20 minutes later, a customer walks into the store, pays for her order. Police said that’s when the cashier mistakenly handed her the food order with cocaine.

A few minutes later, a man walks in.

He bypasses the cashier and starts to count out cash.

Behind the counter, Demoff appears to be getting upset.

Police say it’s because she can’t find the cocaine she had earlier.

But customer she gave it to did and went straight to police.

The white container tested positive for cocaine, police said.

The incident happened in November and the business closed the next day.

Demoff was arrested last week.
