Deputies Seize $1 Million in "Meth Lollipops"

Texas police seize 600 pounds of meth-laced lollipops

Harris County Sheriff's deputies discovered 600 pounds of meth disguised as candy Tuesday morning while investigating a burglary in north Spring.

Officers released several pictures of the seized drugs, showing a home filled with dozens upon dozens of bags prepared to hit the streets. They may look like tasty treats but investigators say they are unsafe.

The police were responding to a report that a home was being burglarized, and noticed a man and woman taking the lollipops out of the house.

Police found a man and woman putting the candy into a auto. As it turns out, the meth-pops were apparently kid-friendly, crafted in the shape of Batman and Star Wars characters, leading investigators to believe that the makers were targeting young people.
