'Donald Trump' ecstasy pills seized by German police

'Donald Trump' ecstasy pills seized by German police

During a random traffic stop, police officers in Osnabruck discovered a stash of Trump-shaped ecstasy pills from a van.

Police in Germany announced they seized about 5,000 ecstasy tablets modeled after the head of U.S. President Donald Trump.

According to a Facebook post by the police, the purchase value of the tablets is around 11,000 euros (Rs 8,30,038), and the sale value is 39,000 euros (Rs 29,42,862).

President Donald Trump's mug showed up on highly detailed and reportedly potent pressed pills across the dark web this summer, and by no surprise became a hot commodity in the party scene. "In addition, a large amount of cash has also been secured", the translated statement reads.

Officials arrested the 51-year old driver and his 17-year-old son, who said they were driving to Hanover from the Netherlands, where authorities believe the drugs were made. "The back of the tablet is embossed with the word "TRUMP" and "*NL". The car's two passengers were detained and a judge issued arrest warrants for both of them. British tabloids reported last month that the pills, reportedly made in both pink and orange, were flooding the United Kingdom illegal drugs market.
