Today’s story is that of an employee at a franchise dealership who has been charged with using dealership property as a trade for heroin.

According to WISN, a member of the dealership office staff at Wilde Honda in Waukesha, WI has been charged with trading use of dealership loaner vehicles for heroin. The report further detailed the former employee received a reported $120 worth of heroin per month in exchange for the use of those dealership-owned vehicles.
