A parent’s worst Halloween nightmare is finding that their kid’s candy has been tampered with. While there are always claims of odd things being found in candy bags, you always hope that these foreign objects are found before being consumed.
A woman in Blossvale, New York claimed she found a needle inside her 2-year-old’s Twizzler, as she posted a video of herself tearing through the candy for the reveal, November 2.
While these kind of claims are always susceptible to hoaxes, there were multiple police report filed in the Vernon, New York area according to CNY Central news. Police are aware of the neighborhoods where the mother and her child in the video went trick or treating, but there have been no reported arrests or charges, as of now.
Vernon PD also put out a public notice for citizens to be careful and check their candy carefully.
The shocking video shows the woman unwrapping what she said was a Twizzler package that was already partially opened. She said she thought her son had gotten into it for the packaging rip, but upon further inspection, she noticed something strange within.
As she tore through the candy, she revealed a threading needle within.
Some of the chronology in the video can be questioned, such as her shock to see the needle, which seemed for the first time, even though she said she had already alerted police about it.
Also, giving your 2-year-old candy is a little weird. You have to believe the candy was really for her.
If some scumbag really was handing out needle-filled candy for Halloween, you can only hope he gets his comeuppance.
