Maybe they just really like sweets?
Texas police have arrested Evonne Christine Mick and David Salinas, both 36, in connection to the burglary of a home filled with meth-laced lollipops. Police were responding to a call about a burglary when they spotted the pair leaving the home and packing their car with all those lollipops — so much so that police say they could barely close the door to their car.
But guess how much drugs were in that house that they broke into? About 600 pounds of drugs were found in the home by police, with the majority being of the meth-laced lollipops variety. Oh, and it’s all worth about a million dollars.
The drugs were intended to be sold among children, as a lot of the lollipops were in shapes resembling Star Wars and Batman characters. The seize of the drugs occurred near a school, another reason police believe the drugs were being targeted at kids.
“Even if they were not sold directly to a child, what if they were dropped anywhere in a neighborhood, and a child were to pick them up is going to see them and think its regular candy,” a sheriff’s spokesman told KHOU.
Investigators believe Mick had stayed at the home before, and she was returning to rob the drug house. Authorities are still trying to identify the producers of the drug. Mick and Salinas were charged with possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.
