Late this afternoon the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service received information that Halloween treats were tampered with.
The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service has received a report of a sewing needle being located inside a small chocolate bar after a child bit into it. The child was not injured.
The investigation is in the preliminary stages and anyone who may have discovered tampered candy is urged to contact the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service at 705-949-6300. An officer from Investigation Services has been assigned to this investigation.
The initial information suggests the candy was handed out in the Lorna Drive, Copernicus Drive and Kerr Drive area; but may be a wider area.
Parents are urged to use caution and take a second look at your child’s candy. It is suggested that before anyone bites into any candy it is cut into small pieces first.
