JACKSONVILLE — A former Burger King employee in north Florida, accused of putting prescription painkillers in two sandwiches he made, was sentenced to five years in state prison.
Woody Bernard Duclos has pleaded guilty to two charges of poisoning food with intent to kill or injure someone. Court records show he was sentenced last week.
Duclos was arrested after two customers at the restaurant found hydrocodone, a painkiller, in their food. Police learned both sandwiches had been made by Duclos, who had been suspended for misconduct.
Another Burger King employee Bryant Keith Jones was arrested on charges of purchase or possession of controlled substance with intent to sell and accessory after the fact.
Police say Duclos made the sandwiches, and Jones sold Duclos the pills.
