No wonder I couldn't ever get any Fire sauce...

The Star Press reports on an odd story that includes masked men, 400 lbs. of sauce packets, and chalupas. Intrigued?

When a group of 10 to 15 people wearing masks enter a fast-food joint in the late evening, the first thing many people would think is that a holdup was about to begin.

But at about 10:46 p.m. Tuesday, when such a group entered a local Taco Bell, they weren't there to take - they were there to return.

The masked men were toting six 40-gallon trash bags filled with individual packets of taco sauce - about 25,000 in all, police guess.

A note left with the sauce - which likely weighed more than 400 pounds, based on data available on Taco Bell's Web site - said the group had been accumulating them for the past three years, storing them in the trunk of a car. They'd thought about using them for a practical joke or selling them on eBay, but conscience dictated their return to the 3244 S. Western Ave. store.

25,000 packets... 400 lbs of sauce. That could top a lot of chalupas...
