SAN CLEMENTE (AP) — Border Patrol agents say two men tried to play them for suckers by smuggling drug-laced lollipops into Southern California — but the crooks were licked by perceptive agents.

The agency says a Chrysler sedan rolled up to a San Clemente border checkpoint around 1 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say the passenger told authorities he had medical marijuana inside a prescription bottle.

Agents got permission to search the car and found three sealed boxes in the trunk. The boxes allegedly contained lollipops, hard candy and cookies laced with the active ingredient in pot.

Authorities say they also found 15 marijuana cartridges for e-cigarettes, three marijuana cigars and nearly 13 pounds of bulk pot.

The driver and passenger were arrested.
