OK City police bomb squad X-rays burrito, decides it’s safe

bigburritosqA potentially dangerous burrito put the bomb squad of the Oklahoma City police on alert last week. NewsOK has the story:

A man brought a Thermos-type container into the Santa Fe Briefing Station, 9000 S Santa Fe Ave., on Thursday afternoon. The man said he found the container on his lawn and noticed tinfoil showing out of the lid, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.

Officers told the man to leave the container outside and the police bomb squad X-rayed the item, Nelson said.

Authorities were cautious of the item because of how heavy the container was and the tinfoil protruding from the lid.

The suspicious thermos payload turned out to be a burrito, Nelson said.

Though the item was deemed harmless, Nelson said he does not recommend residents to take items to police stations.
