Thousands of Trump-shaped ecstasy pills seized in Germany

Sad, sad news.

Two weeks ago we reported about ‘A batch of Donald Trump-pressed ecstasy pills are doing the rounds’. Yesterday a man, 51, and his 17-year-old son are in custody after drugs with estimated street value of €39,000 found in Osnabrück.

German police say they have seized thousands of tablets of the party drug ecstasy in the shape of Donald Trump’s head, a haul with an estimated street value of €39,000 (£36,000).

Police in Osnabrück, in north-west Germany, said they found the drugs while checking an Austrian-registered car on the A30 highway on Saturday.

They said the people in the car – a 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son – told officers they had been in the Netherlands to buy a vehicle but had not succeeded and were returning home.

Officers said they found about 5,000 of the orange, Trump-shaped ecstasy tablets along with a large but unspecified quantity of cash.

On Sunday a judge ordered the father and son to be kept in custody. The car was seized and towed away.
