Burritos Used to Conceal $3,000 Worth of Illicit Drugs

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

It’s probably safe to say that burritos, when they typically come to mind, rarely play this expensive and provocative of a role. However, border authorities recently stopped a woman from smuggling more than $3,000 worth of methamphetamine into the U.S. after attempting to use two burritos as a vehicle of her subterfuge. 

Officials said that the woman kept her toppings simplified, and only wrapped the drugs in simple tortillas and plastic wrap, rather than choosing the "with everything" route. CNN reported that the 23 year-old Nogales woman crossed the Morley Pedestrian Gate on foot from Mexico, and was stopped after drug-sniffing dogs were alerted to her burrito-wrapped packages.

Authorities stated that encased in the falsified burritos was more than a pound of meth. CNN stated that the woman admitted to authorities that she was offered $500 to act as a mule to bring the drugs into the U.S. after being taken into custody. 

In the never-ending string of creative endeavors by drug traffickers to circumvent border control, keep up with DeliMarket News as we report on the latest unexpected fixings and toppings in the industry.
