A couple in Texas were taken into custody after authorities revealed that they found close to $1 million worth of meth lollipops during a bust on Monday.

Law enforcement officials said officers responded to calls of a burglary complaint at a home in Harris County, outside of Houston when they busted Evonne Mick and David Salinas leaving the home and loading a car with drug-laced candy.

Cases of the drugs had been loaded into the back of the vehicle.

Nearly $1million worth of methamphetamine was uncovered on Monday in the backseat of a car

According to Click2 Houston, the suspects had so many bags of drugs that the couple was unable to close the car door.

Police officials believe a large amount of meth-laced candy is being distributed on the streets of Harris County.

Investigators also said the arrests and seizure transpired close to a school, and are worried that the drugs are targeted at children.

The meth lollipops were shaped like different characters such as Batman and Yoda, along with more simple designs such as a flower or butterfly.

Each piece of candy was meant to be distributed on the street at an estimated price between $20-$40, depending on the size.
