German police sequestered around 5,000 tablets of ecstasy from a 51-year-old Austrian man and his 17-year-old son in the northwestern city of Osnabrück over the weekend.
The seized ecstasy pills are colored orange and shaped like the head of U.S. President Donald Trump. The German police estimated that the total street value of the haul is around €39,000 or $45,000.
The front side of the ecstasy pill shows the U.S. President’s face and hairstyle. Trump was written on the back side of the tablet.
The police in Osnabrück found the ecstasy pills while checking an Austrian-registered vehicle (Peugeot 307) on the A30 highway on Saturday around 9:00 o’clock in the evening. The Austrian father and son were sitting in the car.
The police said the suspects travelled to Germany from Netherlands, where they failed to purchase a car.
Aside from the ecstasy pills, the police also seized a large amount of cash from the suspects. The police also confiscated and towed the car of the suspects, who are now under arrest and custody.
Reports last month noted that the ecstasy pills shaped like Trump’s head are being sold for £8 each or £20 for three on the streets of United Kingdom and Western Europe.
One website is selling 1,000 ecstasy pills for £1,200. It is also using the slogan “Trump makes partying great again.” Another website describes the party drug as “Quality orange Donald Trump tablets” and “These pills will blow your head away.”
The drugs are produced in Amsterdam, contain dangerous levels of MDMA, and are also available in pink. In June, a batch of blue and yellow ecstasy pills branded ikea, which resembles the logo of the Swedish Furniture giant, was blamed for the death of a teenager in Jersey, United Kingdom.
The teenager’s death prompted Jersey police to issue a health warning, arrest three people, and confiscate a quantity of the drugs.
