Take another look at the sentence:

Tucked into a secret purse pocket, a slice of pepperoni pizza and large iced tea were purchased with Larissa's last five-dollar bill.

Tucked into a secret purse pocket, a participle phrase, is right next to a slice of pepperoni pizza and large iced tea, an illogical target. No one tucks food and drink into secret purse pockets! It would be too messy.

Before you continue, review the rules for misplaced and dangling modifiers.
