$1 million in methamphetamine candy seized in Houston suburb

$1 million in methamphetamine candy seized in Houston suburb

Police estimate the drug-laced sweets to have a street value close to $1 million, with each lollipop estimated to be sold on the street for between $20 and $40.

Officers released several pictures of the seized drugs, showing a home filled with dozens upon dozens of bags prepared to hit the streets.

On entering the residence, officials uncovered many more bags of the meth-laced lollipops as well as molds used to make them.

Harris County sheriff's deputies were called to a home in Spring after neighbors reported a possible burglary.

Investigators said they believe the sale of the lollipops, some bearing images of Batman and Star Wars characters, was aimed at children.

At the same time, there are 6,500 Palestinians in Israeli jails, including 500 detained without charge , in some cases for years. In the past, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been reluctant to halt the payments, fearing a popular backlash.

"They had so many narcotics in their vehicle they couldn't close the back hatch of their auto", commented Lt. Ruben Diaz. When deputies rolled up, they apprehended the two people, a man and woman, as they were leaving the home. "It's very very risky", said Lt. Diaz.

Deputies said the lollipops had several designs like "Batman", Yoda from "Star Wars", and there were butterfly- and flower-shaped sweets. Dallas News reported that depending on size, the estimated street prices for each lollipop ranged from $20 to $40.

Deputies said the seizure happened near a school and fear these drugs are targeted towards children. If they were not sold directly to a child, what if these lollipops were dropped anywhere in the neighborhood?

Police believe there are more people involved, and the investigation is ongoing.
