POTOSI, Mo (KMOX) - Police in Missouri posted a warned on social media saying they've found drugs that look just like "children's vitamins."

The Potosi Police Department says the narcotics were seized during a traffic stop and the person arrested told officers it's the well-known hallucinogenic, ecstasy.

A photo of the drugs posted by the police department has been shared nearly 1,000 times.

"We wanted to get this out to the public," police stated. "These items will be sent to the crime laboratory for testing."

The warning seems especially appropriate with Halloween just a couple weeks away and parents should be careful about what things they allow children to collect while trick-or-treating.
