Deputies seize $1 million of meth candy in NW Harris County

Deputies seize $1 million of meth candy in NW Harris County

Sheriff's Lt. Ruben Diaz tells Houston television station KTRK investigators donned hazardous material suits to clear the home because they didn't want to breathe the chemical vapors inside. Deputies said the suspects couldn't even close the door because there were so many drugs packed into the vehicle. Diaz asked reporters. "We found the amount of drugs seized from this house was almost a million dollars in street value".

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

Two people in Texas have been arrested in connection to the burglary of an alleged meth dealer's home filled with drug-laced sweets, authorities said.

Two people were arrested on charges of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance in connection to the discovery, KIAH reports. Responding officers stopped the pair as they tried to escaped the area, police said. When deputies rolled up, they apprehended the two people, a man and woman, as they were leaving the home.

Seeing meth manufactured in the form of lollipops is a first for Diaz and other investigators in the department.




Police say the drugs were made in the home, and the design of the lollipops is raising concerns they were being marketed to children.

"And even if they were not sold directly to a child, what if these lollipops were dropped anywhere in the neighborhood?"

Police believe Mick and Salinas meant to distribute the drugs to juveniles, according to the Houston Chronicle, and emphasized the danger to the community the lollipops represented.

The investigation continues as deputies believe other suspects are involved.
