(Scroll down for video) A woman freaked out after finding a bag of cocaine inside a granola bar she purchased at a grocery store, police in Texas said.
The San Antonio Police Department is investigating how the small bag of cocaine ended up inside the packaging of the Nature Valley granola bar.
Cynthia Rodriguez reported the incident to police after the bag of cocaine fell out of the Nature Valley granola bar. Rodriguez said that she initially thought she won a prize.
She called Nature Valley and a representative of the company told her to report the incident to the police. Rodriguez said an officer and a detective tested the substance and it turned out to be high quality cocaine.
The police took the granola bar as evidence.
General Mills, the owner of Nature Valley, said that they do not believe the cocaine entered the package at their facilities as the product moves along fast during processing.
