Hungry Americans often extol the crack-like qualities of addictive foods, but someone in Florida actually tried to serve a burrito with heroin inside. An unidentified man dropped off the illicit Tex-Mex dish to Blake Medical Center in Bradenton, reports the Bradenton Herald, and employees found a syringe containing the drug stuffed inside as a filling.
The man who dropped off the burrito reportedly said it was for a patient, and when employees found the hidden surprise, they immediately called police. Officers administered a field test, and results showed the liquid inside was indeed heroin. The Bradenton Police Department is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information regarding the incident.
Initial reports don't indicate whether the burrito was thoughtfully homemade, or if it was picked up from a restaurant.
Attempting to hide heroin inside a burrito might not be the brightest idea, but it is a little more covert than selling the drug out back behind a Pizza Hut. It isn't the first time someone has thought to combine Tex-Mex and illegal drugs. Last year, a Mexican restaurant in Coachella, Calif., was busted for selling meth on the side.
