Meth-Filled Burritos: Because you Can Wrap Practically Anything in a Tortilla

See? Nothing good comes out of a burrito

See? Nothing good comes out of a burrito

Move over, cocaine-filled tamales. The new wave for smuggling drugs from Mexico into the U.S. consists of stuffing up burritos with methamphetamine.

Customs and Border Protection officers this week said they arrested four Mexican nationals and two Arizona women, during separate weekend smuggling attempts at the Port of Nogales.

In one of those instances, says the U.S. Customs and Border Protection:

A narcotics-detecting canine alerted officers to the presence of drugs and a search determined the woman was carrying more than a pound of methamphetamine in two packages that had been wrapped in tortilla shells to make them look like burritos.

As a proud chilanga who does not eat (and will never eat) a burrito, I can only cheer Customs officials for the feat, and remind my faithful followers of one important fact: Nothing good has ever come out of a burrito.

    Yes at least the cocaine was in something Mexican. A shame it never made it to the streets of Boston. But here’s my question: how the bunny is Nogales a “port”. I’m reminded of that stupid Christmas carol, I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing in. “In Bethlehem in the morning”. Exactly which street in Bethlehem did you see them from?

    They saw them from Whittier Blvd. here in East L.A.
