Another grim discovery, as Peel Regional Police find a sharp object inside a piece of Halloween candy in Mississauga.
On Saturday (Nov. 4) police confirmed a needle was located in an Aero bar collected during trick or treating this past Halloween.
Investigators believe that the piece of chocolate came from the Lorne Park neighbourhood in the area of Indian Road and Indian Grove.
The first incident occurred on Nov. 1, when police issued a public safety notice after an Oh Henry bar collected by a youngster in a south Mississauga neighbourhood on Tuesday night, was found to have a needle inserted into it.
Officers believe the candy bar was collected from a home located south of Mississauga Road, between Portway Avenue and Gatley Road, and north of the QEW.
According to authorities, it is unknown at this time if both incidents have any connection.
Police are reminding parents and children to check through all Halloween candy before eating and to report any instances where they suspect the candy has been tampered with.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453–2121, ext. 1133. Anonymous information may also be submitted by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
