According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, officers were responding to a anxious neighbor's call about what appeared to be a home invasion, when they discovered a man and a woman taking the drug candy from the house and shoving it into a auto in the driveway.

Deputies were originally called to a Harris County home Monday on a report of a burglary. The deputies explained they vehicle was packed so full the doors would not close properly.

Police were investigating a burglary after a neighbor reported someone breaking into a house. On arrival at the residence, they found a man and woman with 600 pounds of colorful, #meth-laced lollipops styled like butterflies, "Star Wars" characters, Batman, flowers and other popular shapes in their possession.

They have a street value of nearly $1 million.

Both are charged with drug offenses.

Each lollipop was estimated to sell on the street for $20 to $40, he said.

"It appears the candy was meant to be distributed among children and/or sold to juveniles", The sheriff's department posted on Facebook.

He thus became only the third player in National Hockey League history to win the award in consecutive seasons. Never mind that his season started nearly nine months earlier with a World Cup of Hockey pre-tournament game.

"What if one of these lollipops were dropped in a neighborhood and a child picked it up?"

The sheriff's office says the drugs were made in the home.

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.

Bags of the drugs had been loaded into the back seat of the vehicle, authorities said.

Deputies said the seizure happened near a school and fear these drugs are targeted towards children.

The investigation continues as deputies believe other suspects are involved.
