The customs agency tweeted photos of the "Despicable Me" inspired pills and the coloring kit that would typically carry crayons, markers and paper.

Officials believe the pills originally came from the Netherlands and were bound for Vina del Mar, a city on Chile's Pacific coast.

A Chilean man and an Argentine man were both placed under house arrest at a Vina del Mar apartment, following the find.

The same day Chilean authorities announced another drug bust. Officials found three backpacks used by smugglers to transport methamphetamine in a false bottom. After examining the backpacks, officials discovered hidden plastic bags containing a white substance crystals, which tested positive for methamphetamine when subjected to field trials. Authorities say that these drugs from Cali, Colombia were bound for Sydney, Australia.
