St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara announces arrest of sandwich shop employee who was selling marijuana as well as sandwiches to people who asked for "extra meat"
St. Lucie County Sheriff's investigators this morning arrested a Fort Pierce Subway Sandwich Shop employee who was selling baggies of marijuana to customers who asked for "extra meat" on their sandwiches, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"Undercover deputies on two occasions used the code words 'extra meat' when they ordered sandwiches from Elizabeth Hunt, 47, of Fort Pierce, when she was behind the counter at the Subway Sandwich Shop at the Hess convenience store at 1998 North U.S.1, Fort Pierce," Sheriff Mascara said. "The 'extra meat' was a baggie of marijuana that Hunt slipped into the sandwich bag."

After making "extra meat" marijuana purchases at the store on May 10 and 26, detectives obtained arrest warrants and arrested Hunt this morning at the sandwich shop.

She was jailed under $55,000 bond on two counts of sale and delivery of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a convenience store, one count of possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a convenience store and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. * * *
