Brainerd police: Parent reports needle in Halloween candy.

In the small Chester County town of Kennett Square, one parent reported finding what appear to be sewing needles inside five wrapped Twix bars on Saturday night. “The Police Department continues to urge parents to check all candy received prior to ingestion, and people with candy left over that was not distributed to check it for tampering,” the post said. KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. (CBS) — Police in Kennett Square, Chester County are investigating reports of sewing needles found inside Halloween candy of several young trick-or-treaters. According to NBC Philadelphia, the needles were discovered when a concerned parent decided to search his kids’ candy after reading a Facebook post about someone else finding needles in Snickers.

Police say they were notified at midnight Sunday from someone claiming that chocolate candy bars handed out in the Stenning Hills area of the borough had been tampered with. On Sunday, WPVI-TV reported that around noon a 12-year-old boy who’d been trick-or-treating in the same area turned in a Snickers bar with a sewing needle inside.
