Police discover candy laced with meth

Candy laced with meth is showing up on the streets.

SPRING, TEXAS - Drug dealers are getting creative as they apparently try to appeal to a younger market.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies discovered 600 pounds of meth disguised as candy Tuesday morning while investigating a burglary in north Spring.

They arrested two people who were carrying out the lollipops in the shape of Star Wars, Batman and other Hollywood characters.

They say the meth lollipops are worth about $1 million the streets and could pose a danger to children.

“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,” said Ruben Diaz with HCSO.

Deputies are searching for more suspects in the case.
