Texas Man Accused Of Stealing $1.2 Million Of Fajitas
A sly thinking businessman was recently busted for making a major profit off the sizzling goodness of a Mexican dish.
Gilberto Escamilla, a Juvenile Justice department worker in Cameron County, Texas, was recently busted for stealing over $1 million worth of fajitas after an 800-pound delivery he planned on pilfering was linked to him.
“If it wasn’t so serious, you’d think it was a Saturday Night Live skit. But this is the real thing,” District Attorney Luis V. Saenz said according to The Brownsville Herald.
Saenz also added that Escamilla admitted to stealing the fajitas for nine years and investigators totaled their worth at a whopping $1,251,578.
He was caught after missing a scheduled delivery for a doctor’s appointment.
The fajita bandit’s been arrested and charged with first-degree felony theft.
