Detectives seized about 1 million dollars in meth they say each of these lollipops can go for twenty to forty bucks.

Officers responding to a report of a possible burglary in Spring on Tuesday led to the seizure of almost 600 pounds of meth pops with an approximate street value close to $1,000,000.

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

Police responded to a burglary call on Tuesday at a Houston home and found two people removing about 600 pounds of the homemade candy-drug mixture from the home. "It appears the candy was meant to be distributed among children and/or sold to juveniles".

Houston Texas Dry Drowning: Child Dies Days After Swimming
Almost a week later, Frankie complained one evening that his shoulders hurt, later waking up in the middle of the night. A four-year-old boy from Houston, Texas died of " dry drowning " nearly a week after his family took a swimming trip.

Inside the home, deputies allegedly found almost $1 million worth of meth-filled candies- some treats molded in the form of popular fictional characters such as Batman, R2D2 and Yoda.

They arrested two people who were carrying out the lollipops in the shape of Star Wars, Batman and other Hollywood characters. When police pulled up to the house, they found a man and a woman packing their vehicle so full of drugs that they were struggling to close the back hatch.

The suspects, identified as Evonne Christine Mick, 36, and David Andrew Salinas, 21, both face a charge of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.

Click2Houston reported the lollipops were likely sold for $20 to $40 each. If they were not sold directly to a child, what if these lollipops were dropped anywhere in the neighborhood?

Bags of the drugs had been loaded into the back seat of the vehicle, authorities said.

Diaz said the meth filled lollipops appeared to target children.

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