Well, now we know it's not just teens who steal Whataburger tents (unless they just confiscated them from teens....). Recently, Houston police were investigating an incident and an unusual sighting was captured.

Police had used Whataburger tents to mark evidence.

No, this not usual procedure.

A Houston police spokesperson told click2houston.com that officers will have to use whatever they have available at the time to mark evidence. This time, it was Whataburger tents.

When forensic teams arrive on scene, they replace the temporary markers with the official markers.

So, if you observe an officer placing a random object on the ground, now we know why.
