The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service continues to strongly urge parents, guardians and all adults with responsibility for children to exercise an abundance of care in monitoring the contents of any remaining candy gathered from Halloween.
The Service is in the midst of an investigation that, from initial indicators, supports the real potential that some candy (typically mini chocolate bars) had been tampered with prior to being handed out last Halloween night. The presence of small nails and sewing needles has been reported to the police.
From a previous Public Announcement issued by the Service on the 4th of November it is believed to be isolated to candy coming out of the Lorna Drive, Copernicus Drive and Kerr Drive area; but may be a wider area.
Before eating any candy it should be inspected by a responsible adult and cut into pieces small enough to detect the presence of anything foreign.
Anyone who may have discovered tampered candy is urged to contact the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service at 705-949-6300.
