CONROE - A restaurant manager accused of selling marijuana packaged in Long John Silver's to-go boxes from his car was arrested on felony drug charges after a three-month investigation by Conroe police.
John Sweeten, 31, was arrested Friday in the parking lot of the Long John Silver's/A&W restaurant, where he is the general manager, said Conroe police Sgt. Bob Berry.
Before narcotics officers arrested Sweeten, who had been indicted earlier this month, they set up surveillance outside the restaurant, police said.
"As they watched, Sweeten set up shop and began selling marijuana in Long John Silver's to-go boxes," Berry said. "He apparently would make deals in the parking lot."
