Tampered Halloween candy reported in Dartmouth
Family finds pin in chocolate bar after trick or treating in Portland Estates in Dartmouth
Halifax Regional Police are investigating a third case of tampered Halloween candy.
Parent Tim Johnson was at home Thursday morning when he dipped into his son’s Halloween candy stash. He was eating a Mars bar when he discovered it had a sewing needle in it.
“I don’t know what type of person could possibly want to inflict pain or anything on someone innocent, like especially a kid,” said Johnson.
Johnson and his son spent Halloween trick or treating in the Portland Estates area of Dartmouth.
He says that when he discovered the tampered candy, he was shocked.
“I was angry and I kept thinking, ‘What if it was him that ate it?’” said Johnson.
Police are encouraging parents and children to check all Halloween candy and report any incidents.
