    Pulled over for a traffic stop Saturday, two Austrians were arrested in Germany after police discovered five bags filled with pasty-orange ecstasy pills modeled in the likeness of US President Donald Trump.

    The arrestees, a 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son, both initially informed the German authorities they were heading back home to Austria after a plan to purchase a car in the Netherlands fell apart.

    ​However, upon inspection, Osnabrück officials found nearly 5,000 pills of the drug MDMA along with a large, unspecified quantity of cold hard cash.

    "During the search of the vehicle police found about 5,000 ecstasy tablets with the portrait of the American president… the purchase value of the tablets amounts to [roughly $12,000]," the officials announced in a statement.

    The street value of the pills stands at roughly $45,900.

    According to reports, the pills, stamped with the Trump name on one side and POTUS' face on the other, were being sold on the darknet with the slogan: "Trump makes partying great again."

    With their Austrian-registered vehicle seized, a judge ordered the father and son duo be kept in custody the following day, Sunday.

    This is by no means is the first time drug manufacturers have used Trump's tanned face to market their product. Back in February, Florida's Hernando County Sheriff's Department confiscated about 5,500 packets of heroin that bore the commander-in-chief's visage.
