CORNWALL – If you still have Halloween candy around the house, city police are urging you to check it.
This, after police received a call Wednesday from someone who found a sewing needle inside their child’s chocolate bar.
Const. Dan Cloutier tells Cornwall Newswatch the needle is roughly 1.5″ long and was lodged in a small Coffee Crisp bar.
There were no injuries but police continue an investigation and have issued a public notice for adults to give candy an inspection before giving it to their child.
Similar cases were reported in Ottawa and Nova Scotia.
Cloutier says it’s the only case of Halloween mischief that has been reported to Cornwall police.
