Travis Wilbur, a jailer in Indiana, was arrested for allegedly trafficking drugs to inmates inside Taco Bell wrappers.

If you thought Taco Bell was addictive, this could have something to do with it.

Corrections officer Travis Wilbur of Indiana allegedly used Taco Bell wrappers to sneak drugs into prison over the course of his yearlong employment at the Plainfield Correctional Facility, WTHR reported.

Officers at the facility arrested Wilbur on Wednesday as he attempted to bring in marijuana and suboxone -- a narcotic -- hidden in black electrical tape surrounded by the fast-food wrappers, cops said.

Wishtv reported that facility personnel were tipped off to Wilbur's alleged scheme: trafficking the drugs to inmates.

He was charged with marijuana possession, trafficking with an inmate and dealing controlled substances, all felonies.

Wilbur had been employed at the prison since March 2011.

Correction: We mistakenly called the Plainfield Correctional Facility a jail. It is a prison. We regret the error.
