OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A burrito caused a minor scare at an Oklahoma City police briefing station after a man brought the foil-wrapped object in for analysis.


Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson says a man discovered a Thermos-type container in his lawn Thursday afternoon and brought it to a police briefing station. Nelson says 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 says anyone who finds a suspicious object should call authorities – not bring it to a police station themselves.
