Police seized hard drugs shaped like children’s candy after they stopped a car in downtown St. John's late Wednesday.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary found more than 1,000 ecstasy pills in the bust.

Photographs released by the RNC show they are shaped to look like Bart Simpson as well as Julius, the ubiquitous monkey character invented by cartoonist Paul Frank.

Police also seized about 30 OxyContin pills.

A woman, 21, who had been driving a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe was taken into custody overnight and charged Thursday with trafficking.

The car was impounded.
