Investigators believe Mack may have lived at the home prior to the bust and returned to burglarize the residence and steal the drug-laced sweets, according to the station.

Harris County deputies say Evonne Mick and David Salinas had taken drugs from the home and had stuffed their trunk so full, it didn't close. 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.

The lollipops were in the shape of different characters such as Batman and Yoda, to more simple designs such as a butterfly or a flower.

Click2Houston reported the lollipops were likely sold for $20 to $40 each.

Mick was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

"They had so many narcotics in their vehicle, they couldn't close the back hatch of their auto", Lt. Ruben Diaz said, according to CNN.

Sgt. Cedrick Collier told reporters the drugs were being manufactured inside the house.

Diaz said the meth filled lollipops appeared to target children.

Deputies are searching for more suspects in the case.
