OKLAHOMA CITY — A burrito caused a minor scare at an Oklahoma City police briefing station, according to a report from KFOR.

Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson says a man discovered a Thermos-type container on his lawn on Thursday and brought it to a police briefing station.

Nelson said the container was “heavy” and had tinfoil protruding from the lid, so the man thought it looked suspicious, according to theĀ report.

Officers told the man to leave the container outside and the police bomb squad X-rayed the item. Police determined the suspicious item was a burrito.

While the burrito was harmless, police are not laughing. Nelson said anyone who finds a suspicious object should call authorities and not bring it to a police station.
