PERU, Ind. — Authorities in Indiana said they seized a number of drugs during a raid last month, including ecstasy pills shaped like President Donald Trump.
Indiana State Police announced on Friday that authorities arrested 129 people on 272 drug-related charges in a series of busts last month. For six days, authorities seized a number of drugs, including orange Trump-shaped ecstasy pills.
The pills are shaped like the president’s head and have “Great Again” printed on the back.
During “Operation Blue Anvil,” authorities patrolled a highway that is known to be utilized by a large volume of motorists from June 19 through June 21, and June 26 through June 28. One of the goals of the operation was to catch criminals who use Indiana’s roadways to transport and distribute illegal narcotics.
Of the 272 drug-related charges, 48 of them were classified as felonies, police said. Officers also issued 193 traffic citations and 511 written warnings.
The Trump pills were similar to the ones seized by Germany police last year, according to The Hill. German police seized about 5,000 of the Trump-shaped pills with an estimated value of nearly $46,000.
Indiana police didn’t share the precise number of drugs that were recovered in last month’s raid.
