LAPD officers seize meth burritos from driver
Police found 14 foil-wrapped packages of meth that resembled burritos in a car during a traffic stop in the Rampart area.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- At first glance they looked like burritos.

But when officers looked a little closer, they found the 14 foil-wrapped packages in a car stopped in Angelino Heights had some very different ingredients: methamphetamine.

The meth burritos were discovered when officers with the Rampart division conducted a traffic stop at Boston Street and Edgeware Road around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

The officers thought the driver appeared nervous. They searched the vehicle and found a trash bag and the foil-wrapped packages inside.

Police also confiscated a handgun and cash and arrested one person for transportation of narcotics.

Officers estimate the meth burritos weigh more than 25 pounds.
