A Mississippi man recently used a Taco Bell quesadilla for way more than just eating when he attempted to hide a gun inside the Mexican dish.
According to the Picayune Police Department, officers witnessed passenger Devin P. Mitchell attempt to hide a gun by folding it inside a quesadilla from the popular fast food restaurant after the vehicle was stopped on East Canal Street due to a traffic violation.
Officers weren’t fooled by the “gourmet” hiding spot, and conducted a thorough search of the vehicle.
After finding the weapon, police also discovered a “distribution amount” of methamphetamine, liquid heroin and drug paraphernalia.
Mitchell was subsequently arrested and charged with multiple offenses, including possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, possession of a weapon by a felon and possession of paraphernalia.
The driver of the vehicle, Olivia Neff, received a citation for disregarding a traffic device.
The department later joked about the incident on Facebook.
“We’re afraid that quesadilla’s last beef has been ground,” the department wrote.
Stay safe out there, and remember to always order your Taco Bell without any illegal toppings!
