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

Police were responding to a call about a burglary to a home in Harris County, near Houston, when they caught Evonne Mick and David Salinas leaving the residence and loading a vehicle with drug laced candy, reported Click Houston. And whoever designed the candy apparently intended the lollipops to be distributed among children or sold to youngsters, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

"They put so many drugs inside the vehicle they were trying to flee in that they couldn't even close the hatch", Diaz said. As it turns out, the meth-pops were apparently kid-friendly, crafted in the shape of Batman and Star Wars characters, leading investigators to believe that the makers were targeting young people. "It's very very unsafe", said Lt. Diaz.

Each lollipop is estimated to sell between $20 and $40 on the street.

Last week, at the hearing of former FBI Director James Comey , panel Chairman Richard Burr had admonished Harris. Mueller, Rosenstein said, has the "full independence he needs to conduct that investigation".

"What if one of these lollipops were dropped in a neighborhood and a child picked it up?" a police spokesperson told the newspaper.

Seeing meth manufactured in the form of lollipops is a first for Diaz and other investigators in the department. They were identified as Evonne Christine Mack, 36, and David Andrew Salinas, 21.

The designs appeared to target children, Diaz said, adding that the home was near a school.

According to KIAH, police are still searching for additional suspects.
