LATimes The 14 tightly wrapped foil packages looked just like burritos when officers found them during a routine traffic stop in Angelino Heights, but on closer inspection it turned out to be methamphetamine, police said Sunday. “14 ‘burritos’ and a gun off the streets thanks to #LAPD Rampart Officers,” LAPD announced on its Twitter feed. “But these aren’t your typical burritos…these were filled with meth!” Officers found the meth burritos about 6:30 p.m. Saturday when they stopped a vehicle at Boston Street and Edgeware Road, according to ABC7. They weighed more than 25 pounds.
During a traffic stop, Los Angeles polices confiscated 14 burritos weighing over 25 pounds, because these burritos were filled with meth. Delicious. The methamphetamine filled Mexican treats look to have been uncovered along with a stash of cash and an illegal gun, which are all shown in a post on the LAPD Twitter account, as the cops showed off the haul from their recent bust. It’s amazing seeing the ways that drug traffickers attempt to move their products undetected, it’s a scene right out of the show Breaking Bad, except the front of their drug operation was Los Pollos Hermanos chicken. Meth burritos probably sound delicious to some drug heads out there, but a bite will likely kill you, do not eat meth burritos. I’m curious as to the street value of these meth burritos? Dangerous burritos have been making the news lately, a South Carolina Taco Bell employee was arrested last week for assaulting his boss with a burrito, and all of this negative burrito press really makes me want Chipotle for lunch.
