A Taco Bell without taco shells might seem, well, criminal. But it’s not something to call the police about.
That’s announcement a police department in Louisiana issued this week in response to a citizen’s call for help.
A Taco Bell in Slidell ran out of hard and soft taco shells, and one irate customer reported the gross miscarriage of justice to the police.
In a Facebook post on Monday, the Slidell Police Department agreed that the lack of taco shells was “truly a travesty.” But the offense wasn’t under their jurisdiction.
People who saw the police post had strong feelings. Here are some of the comments:
- “It should be renamed as Taco Dumbell.”
- “Wow, people are serious about their processed foods!”
- “Wow I’m not sure what’s the bigger crime calling the police for that stupidity or eating at Taco Bell 🤑”
- “Slidell police department, this is definitely NACHO problem. 😂😂”
HuffPost reached out to Taco Bell, which did not immediately respond.
