Parents report 2 cases of Halloween candy tampering

Law enforcement agencies are investigating at least two cases of alleged Halloween candy tampering.



New Jersey State Police say a mother in Commercial Township, Cumberland County reported that she discovered a sewing needle inside a Tootsie Roll that her child got while trick-or-treating.



A Barnegat resident reported to police that they found a small pin inside a Kit Kat bar given out in the Timbers development in town. Police say the candy wrapper was apparently opened.



Police want to urge parents to inspect their children's Halloween candy before children eat it.



No arrests have been made in either case.
