burrito mystery unveiled

Ok, maybe my burrito lady isn’t an angel after all and I was wrong to threaten to never eat another burrito from another woman. Apparently some of our local burrito cart vendors were buying and selling stolen merchandise from my lunch heaven. What I don’t understand is that despite this very profitable second income, why did the price of my beloved bean and cheese burrito (half black, half pinto, poco queso) go up from $2.50 to $3.50? Shouldn’t the Rolex biz have subsidized the beans?  Now that my favorite burrito cart staff is imprisoned, there’s really no reason for me to stay in Portland anymore. LA here I come.

Thanks to the Oregonian for following up on this story.

    I’m not going to say anything about your “intuition” you were preaching about yesterday.

    Just walked by the carts… They’re already back up, and business as usual.

    But there were some cops poking around the area, asking if anyone knew anything about a charismatic short guy, who always wears the same dark grey shirt, and occasionally mispronounces words… I guess he’s part of the “burrito cart ring” or something. Look out for him.
