Palmview, TX (SafeCITY) – Mario Guadalupe Saenz, a 22-year-old man was jailed after police found a wide variety of drugs in his possession, including Barack Obama-shaped ecstasy pills.

According to police, Saenz was stopped after police received a report of reckless driving around 10:15 a.m. Saenz reportedly allowed police to search his car where they found about 200 ecstasy pills in many shapes and colors, including Barack Obama and Homer Simpson.

Officers also seized several grams of cocaine and black tar heroin, over 9 ounces of marijuana, and several Xanax pills, according to investigators.

The ecstasy pills were a special concern for police. Investigators believe the pills were shaped like children’s vitamins so they could be transported across the Mexican border.
