Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Taco Bell Wrapper Mistaken for Bomb!
We live in jittery times nowadays, where any suspicious package is automatically assumed to be a bomb. But there's caution, and then there's stupidity, and that's what happened last week in Fair Oaks, California, where an errant Taco Bell wrapper caused a school lockdown and a bomb squad mission that found a mysterious ball of duct tape covered around...Taco Bell wrappers.
Officials at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, Calif. called in the bomb squad on Tuesday.
Del Campo -- a part of the San Juan Unified School District -- went on "Shelter in Place" status while a suspicious package was investigated, News10 reports.
The package turned out to contain one of Yum! Brands' Taco Bell wrappers covered in duct tape. That became clear after the Explosive Ordinance Disposal team showed up and sprayed water on it.
