Pennsylvania Parents Find Needles Inside Their Children’s Halloween Candy

Did you check your children’s Halloween candy after a night of trick or treating??

Via NBC Philadelphia:

Local authorities are urging parents to carefully check their children’s Halloween candy after what appear to be sewing needles and pins were found in a half-dozen chocolate bars given out to trick-or-treating children in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Police in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania said they were notified about midnight Sunday that Halloween candy handed out in the borough’s Stenning Hills section had been tampered with. Needles were discovered inside five wrapped Twix bars handed out to four different children in the area, police said.

Sunday afternoon, a 12-year-old turned in a sixth candy bar — a Snickers — with a needle in it, police said.

Police believe the tampered-with candy was given out in the area of South Union Street and West South Street. They said the original parent who reported finding the needles checked his kids’ candy after seeing a Facebook post about someone else finding needles in Snickers candy. It’s not clear if that post was about the Snickers the 12-year-old turned in Sunday afternoon.

The Kennett Square Police Department first alerted the community via its Facebook page on Sunday morning to the candy that had apparently been tampered with, saying that a “needle-type item was found inside five wrapped Twix bars given to four different children the evening of Oct. 31, 2015 in the Stenning Hills area of the borough.”

People really ain’t isht!!!
