Opiates Found in Taco Bell Taco; A Massachusetts Mystery

The Falls River Major Crimes Division has cleared Taco Bell in the case of the spiked taco. “Police reported “an opiate” was found in the half-eaten taco a Fall River man said made him sick after eating at the Taco Bell.” Unfortunately for local Fall River lawyers, it seems like the dude spiked his own taco. After the half-eaten morsel was analyzed at the state crime lab, the opiates in the taco were confirmed, but the alleged taco victim, “Phillip Daggett, 27, has declined to cooperate in the investigation and has refused to speak with a detective assigned to the department’s Major Crimes Division.”

“As of right now, he’s not returning our calls,” [Police] said.”

Police have cleared the Taco Bell of any wrong-doing, and Phillip will most likely be charged with filing a false police report. Bad consumer! Bad! —MEGHANN MARCO

    Yeah, according to that article, he hired a lawyer a couple of years ago because he allegedly got sick after he ordered a burger with no pickles but McDonalds put pickles on the burger anyway.

    Definite shenanigans — looking for money/attention.

    It was poppy seeds, wasn’t it? Damn things are poison.

    Besides that, why would any employee waste perfectly good opiates on a customer?

  4. Could have been worse…he could have tried to put gay porn in his taco…

    Knowing a little about this since I live in Mass, I suspect that this person is in need of mental health attention. The incident about the bar rampage (where the taco guy was bartender) was national news. An 18 yr old walked into the bar and went berserk hitting customers in the head with a hatchet, then firing a handgun at customers (amazingly no one was killed at the bar). The kid ultimately fled the area (Massachusetts) to Missouri, killed a cop there then killed himself.

    Sad stuff.

    Somewhere in Western United States, some kids in a Burger King drive-thru put pot in the burgers that were going to two police officers. The cops ended up going to the hospital…and the kids were arrested for assaulting an officer.

      @AlteredBeast: I heard it was too much salt, and they got arrested for it.

      Either way, going to the hospital for salt OR pot is just being way overdramatic.

    I read about that story as well, there is something defintly fishy about that story, mostly because the police supposedly noticed something wrong when they started to feel weird, and then “discovered” pot sprinkled on top of the burger. the problem is that THC must be cooked (suspended in oil really) to be absorbed into the bloodstream and get you high. Now, maybe cheese would work (mostly fat), but I kinda doubt it. As far as I remember, there were some real questions about that case, at least to me.

    Why doesnt anyone ever put percocet in my damn tacos’s? WHY!??

    Lets be honest here, what kind of drug user would waste drugs by putting it into a Taco when chances are they wouldnt see the results.

    This is just another case of some moron trying to get some money.

    Good point. If the BK workers sprinkled on enough pot to effect the officers (and justify their visit to the hospital), large lumps of green would have been noticable after first bite.

    I doubt I could load someone’s burger up with brocolli and they wouldn’t notice right away.
