Suspicious item was burrito, bomb squad says
Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said a man discovered a Thermos-type container in his lawn Thursday afternoon and brought it to a police briefing station. Nelson said the container was heavy and had tinfoil protruding from the lid, so the man considered it suspicious.
The Oklahoman reports that officers told the man to leave the container outside and the police bomb squad X-rayed the item. The analysis determined that it was only a burrito.
Although it was harmless, police aren't laughing at the incident. Nelson said anyone who finds a suspicious object should call authorities -- not bring it to a police station themselves.
