Tainted Halloween Candy Found In North Plains

In the first case of post Halloween candy horror stories, A North Plains Mom finds a dangerous treat in her child’s take of the sweet loot. Washington County Sheriff’s deputies went to a home in North Plains this afternoon responding to a call about suspicious candy.

A concerned mom called deputies after she discovered a pill inside her daughter’s Halloween candy.
Deputy Brain Van Kleef says the mom found the pill in some “sweettart” candies…

While the pill is labeled “Advil,” people who produce illegal drugs sometimes manufacture their products to resemble actual brand name products in hopes of disguising them from law enforcement and parents.

Deputies took possession of the pill and sent it to the state crime lab for testing. The North Plains Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office reminds parents to please check your child’s candy obtained through trick-or-treating on Halloween.
