OKLAHOMA CITY (November 22, 2013) A burrito caused a minor scare at an Oklahoma City police briefing station after a man brought the foil-wrapped object in for analysis.
The man discovered a Thermos-type container on his lawn Thursday afternoon and took it to the briefing station, Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.
The container was heavy and had tinfoil protruding from the lid, so the man considered it suspicious, Nelson said.
Officers the man to leave the container outside.
The police bomb squad X-rayed the item, which turned out to be only a burrito.
Although it was harmless, police aren't laughing at the incident.
Nelson says anyone who finds a suspicious object should call authorities, but shouldn’t take the object to a police station themselves.
