Yes it’s true, some guy in Fontana, CA had such a craving for carnitas that he robbed a guy on a bicycle at gunpoint for $20 worth of tacos. Now I love a good carnitas taco as much as (or more than) the next guy but that’s kind of silly. And what was the victim doing with that may tacos? Around here that would be enough food for 3-4 people, wonder if he had some half-baked friends waiting for him at home? That’s a sad thought: the poor courier showing up at the house empty handed, the wailing of two other stoners about the lack of munchies. What a shame.
FONTANA, Calif. (AP) – A hunger for carnitas nearly led to some carnage after a Fontana man was robbed of a bag of tacos at gunpoint.Police Sergeant Jeff Decker said the 35-year-old victim had just bought about $20 in tacos from a street-corner stand Sunday night and was bicycling home when the suspect confronted him and said “Give me your tacos.”
Decker said the suspect grabbed the bag of food, punched the victim in the face and began to flee.
When the victim demanded his tacos back, the suspect pointed what appeared to be a handgun at the man and threatened to kill him before running away.
