There was a lot more than chips in this bag of Doritos, according to Memphis, Tenn., police.
Sarah Griffin, 68, brought the bag of snacks to the Shelby County Jail on March 3 for her grandson, thinking all that was inside (beyond chips) was a cellphone, a family member told WMC.
But as Cody Clements, Griffin’s grandson, took the Doritos from her, an officer noticed what was going on, authorities said. Clements, 31, tried to snatch a small object wrapped in electrical tape from the bag before the officer confiscated it, but it was too late, WREG reports.
The officer took the bag and the object that had been hidden inside. When the electrical tape had been unrolled, officers found a trove of drugs, including 28.5 grams of meth, 11.4 grams of marijuana, 40 Xanax pills, 1.7 grams of ecstasy and 1.1 grams of heroin, WREG reports.
