London police investigating after needle found in small chocolate bar


Woodstock police investigating after punctured package of candy spotted in child's Halloween treat bag.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to the 400 block of S. Lake Street.

Wisc-TV reported on Wednesday that local police in cities of Arcadia and Neenah received reports from parents about the incidents, which appeared to be isolated. They were not visibly seen until the candy was opened and broken in half.

The candy bars were turned over to police, who are submitting the evidence to the State Crime Lab for testing. A mother told officers she found nails in her 11-year-old son's Halloween candy.

She found nails in three Kit Kat candy bars, police say.

Police encourage everyone to check the candy thoroughly, discard anything that looks suspicious and to report it. No arrest was made in that case.

Arcadia Police say during trick-or-treating hours Tuesday night someone handed out various types of candy with sewing needles in them.
