The presence of a burrito caused a full prison lockdown in New Mexico Tuesday, leaving some concerned and others laughing.
Officials at the Valencia County Detention were ordered to lockdown the facility after is was discovered that a guard had smuggled a burrito into the prison, intending to give it to an inmate.
The prison warden Joe Chavez said he believed the guard and inmate were attempting a dry run to see if it were possible to bring in contraband via burritos.
Chavez told KOAT TV that after more than 20 years ‘this is a first that I saw someone smuggle in a burrito.’
Upon discovering the burrito, officials handcuffed the inmate. A man inside said he heard them tell the man, “You’re not getting your burritos anymore!”
The guard was fired, and a search was conducted. While contraband was found, officials said there was nothing that indicated any of it had been received in a burrito.
