Burrito causes scare at Oklahoma City police station

Story Topics

A burrito caused a minor scare at an Oklahoma City police briefing station on Thursday after a man brought in a cooler he found on his lawn that he deemed suspicious.

The man said he found the container on his lawn and noticed tinfoil showing out from under the lid, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said, as News OK reported.

Police were cautious of the item because of how heavy the container was and the tinfoil showing. Police instructed the man to leave the item outside, News OK said.

A bomb squad X-rayed the item and found that it was only a burrito.

Capt. Nelson said that the burrito incident is no laughing matter and that people should never move a suspicious object.

“If you think it might or could be dangerous, you should not touch or move it,” he said. “Call the authorities, and we will investigate it there.”
