Investigators recovered almost $1 million worth of meth-laced lollipops during seizure Monday in a neighborhood just outside of Houston.
The lollipops found carried an estimated street value of $1 million.
The reason, deputies say, is the enormous amount of drugs they had with them.
Harris County Sheriff's deputies on Thursday received a report of a possible burglary in progress at a home in Spring in the #Houston area. "It appears the candy was meant to be distributed among children and/or sold to juveniles".
Deputies said there were so numerous lollipops in the suspects' vehicle, they couldn't even close the door. The drug is designed in kid friendly shapes even featuring popular star wars characters and flowers. They were identified as Evonne Christine Mack, 36, and David Andrew Salinas, 21.
Diaz said the meth filled lollipops appeared to target children. The lollipops - sold for $20 to $40 - were created to look like flowers, bats, Yoda and more, according to KHOU. If they were not sold directly to a child, what if these lollipops were dropped anywhere in the neighborhood?
Investigators believe the meth and lollipops were manufactured inside this home and are now investigating the scope of the twisted operation.
The two suspects in the incident, Salinas and Mick, were arrested and are now facing charges of possession with intent to deliver or manufacture a controlled substance.
Deputies are searching for more suspects in the case.
