Police in Germany have seized around 5,000 ecstasy tablets shaped like the head of US President Donald Trump.

The carrot-coloured pills were confiscated over the weekend when police searched a vehicle being driven by a father (51) and son (17) in the city of Osnabruck.

In a statement released on Monday, police said: "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 approximately €11,000 (about $12,900); the sale value amounts to approximately €39,000."

The pair were arrested and are currently in custody.

This is not the first time the Trump pills have surfaced in Europe.

Previous reports detailed how the drugs are being sold on UK websites under the slogan "make partying great again."

It is believed the drugs are being imported from Amsterdam.
