Woman gets threatening message - via tortillas

May 4, 2010 8:30am

League City police are investigating a threat written in Spanish on two corn tortillas that a woman found underneath her car over the weekend.

The tortillas were discovered in the 1800 block of Wren Drive at about 5:45 a.m. Sunday after the 24-year-old woman moved her red Toyota Corolla, League City Police Sgt. David Hausam said.

Hausam said the message translated to, “Do you like my tortillas? Death.”

The message's writing was divided between the two tortillas.

The woman is unsure who left the tortillas, but suspects that it may have been her ex-husband, Hausam said.

“People do some crazy stuff,” Hausam said, “but no one before had left tortillas with messages on them that I can think of.”

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
