Police have revealed they discovered meth hidden in a man's hamburger after they pulled his car over as part of a traffic stop.

Some people like mustard on their burger, others prefer sticking with ketchup, some even like a fried egg, but one man apparently likes something a bit more rogue and illegal - deciding to think outside the box when hiding his drugs and tuck a small bag of meth snugly in-between his cheeseburger's two buns.

On Saturday night (22 July) officials from Lauderdale County Sheriffs Office pulled Timothy Nolen over on Highway 157 'just north of Underwood' in Indiana.

And they ended up discovering the 45-year-old had a whole lot more than just a revoked driver's license and the wrong tag on his car.

While impounding Nolen's car, Sheriff Joe Hamilton recalls the driver making excessive reference to the hamburger left in his car, eager to get back to munching it.

In a press conference, Sheriff Hamilton said: "[He said he] was very hungry and would like to eat the hamburger.

"A few minutes later, the deputies discovered exactly what was in the hamburger."

In a release, deputies said: "During the inventory of the vehicle, Nolen made several references to being hungry and just wanting to eat his hamburger.

"Unfortunately, the burger contained more than lettuce and pickles.

"Deputies retrieved a small bag of Methamphetamine."

Nolen has since been charged with driving with a revoked licence and having a switched tag, as well as being in possession of a controlled substance.

People have flooded to Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office post in surprise over the police's finding.

One Facebook user said: "Good work deputies!"

"Wonder where the burger is from," another wrote.

A third commented: "Meth-Donald’s?"

However, a fourth responded: "You know it's not McDonald's cause you can see the meat, and it's not Jack's cause the buns are toasted."

And only simply summed up: "Yikes!!!"

At least no one accidentally ate the hamburger with the drugs still inside - a mum was arrested after her child took her marijuana gummies into school, sharing them out among their classmates, leading to the class falling severely unwell and four students even having to be taken to hospital.
