Taco Thievery and More: the Worst Crimes Related to, Yes, Tacos
Barbacoa tacos, no heroin
Nothing like a little crime report to get the morning started. Yes, you have plenty of burglaries and murders to sort through, but BuzzFeed has something even better: the 30 Best Taco-Related Crimes Ever. While you've got classic examples of taco aggression with scores of people throwing tacos in other people's faces, taco theft (while wielding a machete, no less), and taqueria holdups, you'll also discover a treasure trove of, well, spicier crimes.
Learn about the person who fire bombed a Taco Bell demanding a meatier chalupa (valid concern, though -- they weren't packing in the meat; should have gone for a Cheesy Gordita Crunch), the sheriff's department worker who smuggled heroin into jails via barbacoa tacos, and the man who pulled a gun on a Taco Bell employee for forgetting the hot sauce in his order. Customer service just isn't what it used to be.
