An Oklahoma man Thursday brought a suspicious item he found on his lawn to a police station, where further inspection, including a bomb squad X-ray, identified it as a burrito.

Authorities at the Santa Fe Briefing Station were thrown off by the item’s weight and tin foil protruding from its top, so they cautiously told the man to leave it outside, said Capt. Dexter Nelson, before closer examination revealed the culinary nature of its contents.

Nelson advised residents not to take items of concern to police stations. “If you think it might or could be dangerous, you should not touch or move it,” he said, adding they should call police for help. “We will investigate it there.”

No word on the provenance of the rogue wrap.
