Devon RCMP are investigating pins found in Halloween candy.
A resident called police when their child found pins, described as being straight pins with a curved top, in three different candy treats: marshmallow type candies, Starburst and a Cheezies chips bag.
Police believe the treats were handed out from the same home.
Officers have held onto the candy and say there are no other reports of pins in candy, however, they request parents to check their children’s candy bags.
“This is a very alarming occurrence but we want to assure our Devon citizens that this is the anomaly in our community and we are working to solve this. The safety of our community is an RCMP priority,” explained Sgt. Jolene Nason.
