HOUSTON (WCMH) – Deputies in Texas seized meth-laced lollipops worth $1 million during a drug bust Monday.
Deputies were originally called to a Harris County home Monday on a report of a burglary.
Two people were found leaving a home with the drug-laced lollipops, KPRC reported. Deputies said there were so many of the lollipops in the suspects’ car, they couldn’t even close the door.

Each lollipop could be sold from $20 to $40, depending on the size.
Meth-pop designs include flowers, butterflies, Yoda, bats and R2-D2.
