    The Drug Enforcement Administration says meth hidden inside wax figurines depicting Disney characters has been confiscated near Atlanta and is worth roughly $2 million. 

    It is one of the biggest meth busts ever in Gwinnett County, the DEA told WSB-TV. The drugs were concealed inside 500 figurines depicting Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck, Pluto and other Disney characters.

    DEA Atlanta Division Special Agent in Charge Robert Murphy says the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta. He says another load containing legitimate ceramic figurines was intercepted and is believed to have been intended as a decoy. 

    An investigation is ongoing.
