MARION, Ind. - Ten to 15 people wearing masks left six 40-gallon trash
bags full of taco sauce packets at a Taco Bell restaurant in what
police described as a prank.

A note attached to the bags said the group had been accumulating them
for the past three years, storing them in the trunk of a car,
authorities said.

Police have suspended their investigation into the Tuesday night prank
in the city about 50 miles northeast of Indianapolis without any
arrests, said Marion Deputy Police Chief Cliff Sessoms.

"From everything we've got here, there doesn't appear that there has
been any crime committed," he said. "It looks more like a prank than
it does anything else, but not a very funny one because you've got
that number of people coming in there with their faces covered up."

A spokesman for Taco Bell said he's never heard of people returning so
many unused packets of sauce.

"I've heard a lot of people accumulate sauce packets in their glove
compartments. We know people keep things and it's a pretty common
phenomenon, but to have that many, I've never heard of that," said
spokesman Rob Poetsch.

He said the packets would not be used, for safety reasons.
