(Scroll down for video) A couple was busted for producing meth laced sweets, which they intended to sell to children and teenagers, according to police in Texas.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said that the couple was caught while deputies were investigating a burglary early on Monday morning.
An estimated 600 pounds of meth-pops were recovered, with an approximate street value of close to $1,000,000.
It appears the candy was intended to be distributed among children and/or sold to juveniles, police said.
Some candy were molded into Batman and Star Wars shapes to raise their appeal for children.
The man and woman were caught after a neighbor called to report a burglary, but when police arrived, they found the couple placing boxes of the candy into their car.
Police went into their home, and discovered that the suspects were producing the candy in their kitchen.
The suspects were identified as Evonne Christine Mack, 36, and David Andrew Salinas, 21.
