Cocaine in Granola Bar: Texas Grandma Finds Drugs Inside Snack Wrapper

By    |   Thursday, 07 May 2015 03:17 PM

A Texas grandmother opened a Nature Valley granola bar recently and found a small bag of high-quality cocaine, and now investigators are stumped as to how the packet of drugs got into the wrapper in the first place.

Cynthia Rodriguez, 60, opened the granola bar in mid-March, and she told San Antonio Police Department investigators that at first she thought she had won a prize, KENS 5 reported. But when she called Nature Valley, a General Mills company, she was instructed to call the police.

“It's a somewhat disturbing case," Sgt. Javier Salazar told KENS 5. "You think of a child getting a hold of a package that's got interesting symbols on it, dollar signs in this case, and ingesting something like cocaine that could have a possibly dangerous effect, maybe even deadly on a child.”

Investigators are trying to determine how the cocaine got in the granola wrapper; Rodriguez told KENS 5 the box of granola bars and the individual bar didn’t seem to have been opened. She was relieved one of her grandchildren didn’t find the cocaine.

"We're not sure if this was something added on purpose or if it was something that may have fallen out of someone's pocket on the assembly line," Salazar told KENS 5.

The cocaine was in a small plastic bag with green dollar signs printed on it.



Rodriguez told ABC News that she didn’t buy the bars, but that a family friend gave them to her for free.
