There is a Subway restaurant manager in Layton, Utah, who is in the middle of some serious damage control after a worker put meth and THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) in a police officer’s drink Monday. The restaurant is located just off Highway 193.
The police officer’s name has not been released but the worker, 18-year-old Tanis Lloyd Ukena is in police custody.
A security video clearly shows the suspect spending “additional time” while filling the police officer’s drink at fountain for the drive-up window. The police officer, a Layton police department sergeant, was in uniform and in a squad car at the time of the incident.
The officer knew after just a couple of sips of his drink that it had been altered. He began to feel the effects almost immediately, although he was able to make his way back to his station. He was taken to Davis Hospital and Medical Center where at last report he was still hospitalized.
Subway released the following statement:
We are shocked by these charges. Our thoughts are with the Sergeant and his family and we are hoping for a quick recovery. The restaurant owners are working closely with the police in their investigation and will take appropriate action.
As this is still an active police investigation, we cannot provide any further information and must refer further questions to the police.

Ukena was arrested on second degree felony charges. It is not known if bail was set or when he is scheduled to appear in court.
