Deputies seize meth-laced lollipops

Deputies seize meth-laced lollipops

Texas police seize $1 million of meth sweets in Texas.

Investigators estimate that the 600 pounds of meth lollipops seized from both the suspects' vehicle and inside the home is worth $1 million on the street.

Diaz told the Dallas News that Mick and Salinas aren't suspected of making the meth, though it is believed that the drugs were made in the home.

Investigators believe Mack may have lived at the home prior to the bust and returned to burglarize the residence and steal the drug-laced sweets, according to the station.

Deputies were called by a neighbor to respond to a burglary that led to the arrest of two people stealing the meth-pops from an alleged meth dealer's home.

"They had so many narcotics in their vehicle, they couldn't close the back hatch of their auto", Lt. Ruben Diaz said, according to CNN. When police arrived they found a man and woman putting the bags of candy into their auto. "It's very very unsafe", said Lt. Diaz. Police contend that the design of the lollipops - molded into shapes like Star Wars characters and butterflies - indicates the end product was intended for children.

Deputies said the seizure happened near a school and fear these drugs are targeted towards children.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the lollipops may have been sold for $20 to $40 each on the street.

Seeing meth manufactured in the form of lollipops is a first for Diaz and other investigators in the department.

Two suspects, Evonne Mick and David Salinas were caught leaving the residence and loading a vehicle with the drug-laced candy.

Deputies believe Mick lived there before her arrest, according to KIAH.
