Sorry folks, the Baja(hahaha) Blast(er) is not on the menu at the Picayune Taco Bell

Police confiscated this gun hidden inside a quesadilla in Picayune over the weekend.

We found our favorite Facebook post ever after a traffic stop on East Canal Street in Picayune turned up a delicious but deadly surprise.

According to Picayune Police Department, it was around 12:38 p.m. that officers with the Picayune Police Department Neighborhood Enhancement Team made what some might call “a routine traffic stop” for a violation on East Canal Street.

The driver was Olivia Neff, police said, and she was there with passenger Devin P Mitchell. While officers were conducting the traffic stop, Mitchell concealed a handgun inside a folded quesadilla in a Taco Bell bag.

In a quesadilla. Now we’ve heard it all. We know what that does to your stomach… what does it do to the finish on your weapon? But we digress.

Officers conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle. During the search officers located a distribution amount of methamphetamine, liquid heroin, and drug paraphernalia.

Mitchell was subsequently charged with Possession of Controlled Substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Tampering with Physical Evidence, Possession of Weapon by Felon and Possession of Paraphernalia. Neff was cited for disregard for a traffic device and released at the scene.

  • possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm
  • possession of a controlled substance
  • tampering with physical evidence
  • possession of of weapon by felon
  • possession of paraphernalia

A Facebook account called “Mississippi Gulf Coast Purgatory” posted a screenshot of WLOX’s original story with the caption, “I see someone ordered the new Baja Blast(er).

Sadly, you can’t get that at Taco Bell, but if you bring your own quesadilla, some of our gun store sponsors might be able to help you. Delicioso!
