Harris County Sheriff's Office says they have performed a major drug seizure in northwest Harris County.

The suspects, Evonne Mick and David Salinas, "put so many narcotics inside the vehicle they were trying to flee in, they couldn't even close the back hatch", said Lt. Ruben Diaz at a press conference.

Harris County Sheriff Office deputies conducted the raid Tuesday morning after they received calls that a person was attempting to break into a Houston-area home.

Deputies said there were so numerous lollipops in the suspects' vehicle, they couldn't even close the door. The candy had been melted into various shapes and designs, like flowers and butterflies or more complicated figures like Batman or Yoda.

The lead plaintiff, Majid Karami Kamasaee, was detained on Manus Island for 11 months from September 2013. All migrants arriving to Australia without a visa are subject to mandatory detention.

Officers responding to a report of a possible burglary in Spring on Tuesday led to the seizure of almost 600 pounds of meth pops with an approximate street value close to $1,000,000. Dallas News reported that depending on size, the estimated street prices for each lollipop ranged from $20 to $40.

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

Investigators believe the meth was manufactured inside the home and that Mick was living at the residence at one time. Knowing the drugs were inside, officers speculate the suspects returned to burglarize the house and steal the sweets inside.

Deputies believe Mick lived there before her arrest, according to KIAH.
