The "happiest place on earth" may actually be in Atlanta, where authorities found 500 pounds of meth valued at $2 million hidden inside Disney figurines.

It was not immediately clear whether any arrests had been made in connection with the bust. Each was stuffed with about a pound of crystallized methamphetamine.

The drugs were found hidden inside figurines that looked like Donald Duck, Tigger, Pluto and other characters.

"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.


"Not only the amount, this is a significant amount anywhere in the US", agents said.

Agents said "good old fashioned law enforcement" and a traffic stop led them to the drugs onboard a semi.

The street value of the drugs is about $2 million, according to the DEA. "It's poison. It's not only ironic, it's sick that they would use this".
