Staples Found in Halloween Candy
The Mentor Police Department asks residents to look through the candy their children collected during trick or treating
As a result of a tampered candy report last night, the Mentor Police Department is encouraging residents to monitor the treats their children received during trick or treating.
According to the City of Mentor's website, a woman called police Sunday night to report staples in a box of Nerds that her child collected while trick or treating in the Headlands area.
The woman noticed that the box of Wonka Grape Nerds candy had the top bent back but was still glued shut. She opened the box and discovered that it was half comprised of staples instead of candy.
The child had been asking for candy on Homewood, Jordan and Willowbrook drives and Spinnaker Court.
Residents are asked to call police at 440-974-5760 if they find something suspicious.
