According to Yahoo, Gilberto Escamilla, 53, was really out here profiting off of these little fajitas. Authorities found out that he was ordering the Mexican food to the Darrel B Hester Juvenile Detention Centre in Cameron County with there money and then sold it for personal profit.

But it gets better “Suspicions were raised after a driver from a food company called the centre’s kitchen to tell them an 800-pound delivery of fajitas had arrived. The grilled meat dish was not served at the detention center"

He ended up pleading guilty to theft by a public servant.

Authorities said he took about $1, 251,578 worth of fajitas and delivered them to his own clients.

“It was selfish. It started small and got bigger and out of control,” Escamilla said in court. “It got to the point where I couldn’t control it anymore.”

he Fajita man has 50 years to think about his meat stealing actions.

Who Knew Fajitas could be so expensive.
