Police said the drugs were in the shape of frog heads in multiple colors.
“Please make sure to speak with your children and educate them about suspicious candy like substances,” the police department wrote on Facebook.
The suspected ecstasy was found along with other drugs during the traffic incident, police said. The hallucinogenic stimulant can be cut with other drugs including LSD, meth and Fentanyl.
Chanel 2′s Tom Regan was in Auburn, where police said a suspected drug dealer, Terrence Hinds, crashed his car Wednesday afternoon outside of a Dollar General on Atlanta Highway. Police became suspicious when Hinds acted nervous and smelled like marijuana.

“It looks a lot like Halloween candy,” Morgan said. “I’m glad they were able to arrest him, because we need that off the streets.”
