A Mississippi man was arrested Friday during a traffic stop after he attempted to hide a gun in a quesadilla from Taco Bell, according to police.
The Picayune Police Department says that around 12:30 p.m. Friday, the department’s Neighborhood Enhancement Team conducted a traffic stop.

Mitchell faces multiple charges including possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, possession of a weapon by a felon and possession of paraphernalia.
Neff received a simple traffic citation and was released at the scene.
