Parents find sewing needles in Halloween candy, police say
ARCADIA, Wis. — Arcadia police are warning residents of various types of trick-or-treating candy found with needles in them, according to a release.
Officials said the incident happened Tuesday night between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
In both instances, the needles appear to be sewing needles, according to the release. The needles were not visibly seen until the candy was opened and broken in half.
Officials are reminding parents to check their children’s candy thoroughly before allowing them to eat it.
Police ask anyone with information on the candy to call the Arcadia Police Department at 715-538-4351.
Neenah police also said officers met with a mother Tuesday night who discovered nails in three pieces of her son’s Halloween candy. Police say they’ll submit the candy to the crime lab for testing. Authorities say it appears to be an isolated incident.
