  • DEA seizes knock-off Disney figurines filled with meth

The Atlanta branch of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) made the remarkable find, with the haul worth roughly $2m (£1.4m).

Several agencies worked together, including the DEA and Homeland Security, to pull off the drug bust in Gwinnett County, Georgia. The real figurines of characters like Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Pluto were allegedly used as a "cover load" in an attempt to hide the illegal ones, but it didn't work.

"DEA Atlanta Division Special Agent in Charge Robert Murphy says the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta", writes a local CBS affiliate. He told WSB-TV a "major organization" is thought to have created the figurines, as well as hundreds of other ceramic toys as a way of concealing drugs.
