Baffled police found satanic altars in a property during a drugs raid.

Officers swooped after locals complained that narcotics were being dealt with at the residence.

Inside, they found several bags containing various quantities of cocaine, crack, and marijuana.

They also seized various drug paraphernalia from the property.

But that’s not all they found inside.

The officers were stunned when they came across two devil effigies sitting upon thrones.

One was black and the size of a child.

The other was gold and adult-sized.

Both had goat-like horns protruding from their temples and were dressed as charros – traditional Mexican cowboys.

They were surrounded by empty liquor bottles and beer cans in the residence in Mexico City.

The property has since been sealed off as the police search for suspects.

The police said about 1.2 kg (2 lb 10 oz) of marijuana and at least 300 g (10 oz) of crack were seized.

The cocaine was divided among 118 airtight bags.

Investigations continue.

It’s not the first time similar effigies have been found during drug busts in Mexico.

Dubbed “narco saints”, the police believe drug traffickers pray to them to bring them good fortune.
