An unsuspecting supermarket employee got an alarming surprise this week.
The worker at an Albertsons store in Roswell, New Mexico, opened a container of frozen ribs Wednesday and found a .38 super semi-auto handgun along with seven rounds of ammunition packaged with the meat.
He brought the firearm and ammo to a local police department at about 2pm that afternoon and authorities are beginning to piece together some preliminary clues, a police public relations liaison said.
However, since the unidentified employee cleaned the pistol before turning it in, tracing its origin has not been easy, authorities say.
There are no fingerprints to go by and as of now there is little indication why the gun was packaged separately in the container the frozen meat.

Maybe they are Fast and Furious ribs and they can wrap this case up.
That is exactly what I think he was considering.
Quit using Google.
Could be a great marketing idea! Like a toy in a cereal box, a different gun with every rack of ribs.
Would make me a recurring rib eater for sure !!!
“I’d be concerned about the origin of those ribs!”
Honest, it tastes like chicken, honey...
I have no fingerprints, silly earthling.
There is only one DISTURBING element of this story, which seems missed by all:
“A police report shows that the meat came from the Swift Packing Plant in Greeley, Colorado, and is marked with the date June 8, 2011.”
Who the hell is selling 18 month old meat for public consumption???
a considerate meatpacker who is also providing the cure for what ails ya after ya eat it.
OK FReepers: Question ... if you find a handgun or a rifle are you required to report it or is that a finders-keepers scenario?
Is it any different than any other valuable object that you find?
You would probably not want to keep it since if it had ever been used in a crime the ballistics could be traceable to the gun and you as the owner if you ever used it for some reason — and then you would have some real splainin’ to do.
Maybe it was planted by an alien.
He HAD to clean it after he got back from the range...
