An Iowa employee has been arrested for allegedly creating a meth lab inside a Taco Bell.
Chris Matous, 31, and his partner Kent Duby, 56, were caught outside the restaurant at 5am on Tuesday morning, supposedly cooking meth and not anxiously awaiting Taco Bell’s new breakfast items.
The Walter and Jesse-esque duo’s meth-cooking paraphernalia was found in the utility area of the restaurant. After police searched the restaurant, the criminals were charged with possession of methamphetamine and various meth ingredients, and conspiracy to manufacture product.

Taco Bell wants to make it very clear that although the lab was secretly located inside the restaurant, the drug was not manufactured near the kitchen area or any food. The restaurant also wants the public to know this is a one-time deal and there won’t be any more incidents like this in the future.
After a man found meth in his In-N-Out milkshake, it’s no surprise that Taco Bell is jumping through hoops to make sure an incident like this never happens again.
