The actual taco-related crime of the week happened in Nogales, Sonora. I was in Tucson last week and picked up a copy of a Spanish-language paper, which recounted the tale of a girlfriend who tried to smuggle some happy pills to her imprisoned guy by inserting them into a bean taco--it was Sonora-style, so you know it was the real, hard-shelled deal!
In the world of Taco Bell, it was quite the packed week for crimes--a woman robbed while she waited in the drive-thru lane, a fire--but none beat (no pun intended) the following from something named Corbin, Kentucky:

A Corbin man was arrested late Wednesday for second-degree assault after he beat his girlfriend, according to the Corbin Police Department.
The man, Martin N. Quitter, 51, told police he and his girlfriend had argued over Taco Bell food and, during the dispute, the woman "fell down."
Police said the girlfriend suffered a broken nose and a broken eye socket that left her left eye swollen shut as well as possible breaks to ribs and one arm. She also complained of pain in her legs.
Police went to the woman's home after receiving a 911 call from the residence.
