Texas police seize 600 pounds of meth-laced lollipops

Investigators in Harris County, Texas have recovered almost $1 million worth of meth-laced lollipops. Police said the drugs had a street value of nearly $1 million. But investigators say they are made of meth.

"I don't believe these two people were the actual people making them", a HCSO official said.

When officers arrived on the scene they discovered a male and female removing the lollipops from the home, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said.

The Harris County Sheriff's office posted photos of the lollipops on Facebook, warning residents that they may have been meant to target children or young people.

Deputies said the suspects couldn't even close their auto door because there were so many drugs packed into the vehicle. Police found a man and woman putting the candy into a vehicle. Diaz said police found 600 pounds of meth lollipops in various different shapes from butterflies, flowers, bats to Star Wars characters inside.

Trump says Comey not telling truth, willing to respond under oath
Trump stopped short of saying that Comey lied under oath at the hearing, which occurred a month after Trump fired him on May 9. When he has responded to Comey's testimony, it has been to call him a "leaker" and say his testimony was "full of lies ".

Each lollipop was estimated to sell for up to $40 on the street and they were apparently designed with child in mind, Diaz said.

"What if one of these lollipops were dropped in a neighborhood and a child picked it up?"

As reported by the New York Daily News, Diaz said the design of the lollipops appears to target children, adding that there is a school located near the residence. Detectives arrested Evonne Mick and David Salinas after they allegedly tried to take the drugs from a home in Spring.

The investigation continues as deputies believe other suspects are involved.

Both suspects face a charge of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.
