State Police: Sewing needles found in Halloween candy

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (AP) – Maryland State Police say a woman found sewing needles in Halloween candy her child had received while trick-or-treating.

Troopers say the woman called authorities Monday night when she found the needles while inspecting the candy before letting her child eat it. Authorities say the woman took her children trick-or-treating in Prince Frederick in Calvert County.

Police went to the neighborhood in Prince Frederick and checked for any similar incidents, but found none.

On Monday, police in Salisbury reported that a teenager found a sewing needle lodged inside a piece of candy he had received trick-or-treating.
