Seemingly coming from a horror flick scene, operatives of the Halton Regional Police are currently launching an investigation after a razor and screw were found concealed in a bag of Halloween candy given to a 10-year old child while trickling or treating last week.
According to a statement from the Halton Police, the items were discovered on November 6 when the young Milton resident opened two mini-Snickers and mini-Aero chocolate bars from his Halloween stash. It was also revealed that the child got the spiked candies on October 31 while trick or treating in the vicinity of the greater residential area of Savoline Boulevard and Derry Road.
The authorities also urged parents and guardians to thoroughly inspect the Halloween loot their children and charges received while trick or treating for any possible suspicious items regardless of where they got it.
Moreover, the Halton Police asked the public to contact the on-duty Staff Sergeant at 905-825-4747, extension 2410, or Detective Mark Brewster at 905-825-4747 to relay any information that may help the investigation move forward or identify the people responsible for the candy spiking.
Crime Stoppers can also be reached at 1-800-222-8477 for anonymous tips.
