An employee of a district attorney's office in Texas was busted at work for allegedly stealing $1.2 million worth of fajitas in a nine-year period, according to The Brownsville Herald.

According to Cameron County District Attorney, Luis Gilberto Escaramilla was sacked on Aug.8 and arrested the next day after authorities obtained a search warrant and found packages of fajitas in his refrigerator that he was selling away. "We've possessed the capacity to reveal two of his buyers, and they are participating with the examination".

The investigation began in August when a delivery driver for Labatt Food Service called the juvenile center's kitchen, and a woman told the driver the kitchen didn't serve fajitas.

The original cost of the theft was estimated to be between $2,500 and $30,000, but when the District Attorney's office kept investigating, they alleged that the true cost of all the orders was $1,251,578 worth of fajitas, the Brownsville Herald reported.

"If it wasn't so serious, you'd think it was a Saturday Night Live skit. But this is the real thing", Saenz said. A kitchen staffer said the juvenile center didn't serve fajitas, but the driver said he'd been delivering there for almost a decade. The department, which Saenz said had been exceeding its line item budget consistently, has since announced a review of its policies and procedures.

"Up and down the chain of authority, people were signing off on these things", Saenz said.

They also checked invoices and determined he would intercept county-funded food deliveries and deliver them to his own customers, according to the newspaper.
