Steve Stephens taste for McDonalds helped the Pennsylvania State Police catch the accused Facebook killer in Erie, according to GoErie.com.
Employees at the McDonalds on Buffalo Road, in Harborcreek Township, said a drive-through attendant alerted state police when Stephens stopped at the restaurants drive-through window shortly after 11 a.m.
The McDonalds is about five miles east of where state police stopped Stephens in Erie.
Thomas DuCharme Jr., owner and operator of the McDonalds, said the attendant thought she recognized Stephens. DuCharme said the attendant then called state police.
DuCharme said Stephens ordered 20 chicken nuggets and a basket of fries, but that the workers held off on delivering the fries to delay Stephens. He said Stephens got the nuggets.
We told him his fries were going to be a minute, said Henry Sayers, the restaurants manager.
Said DuCharme: I am pretty sure he figured out that we were on to him. He didnt want to wait for his fries.
He said Stephens then drove away without the fries.
