Needle Found In Halloween Candy In Salisbury

A needle was found inside these twizzlers handed out Halloween night. The candy came from the Camden neighborhood area / Monticello drive area. If you got candy from the area please check it and call police if you know who would do this disturbing thing

During the evening hours of November 01, 2015, Salisbury Police Officers initiated an investigation into Halloween candy that was found to contain a sewing needle.

At approximately 5:30 p.m. Sunday evening, Salisbury Officers responded to the 1000 block of Grant Avenue for a report that a child's Halloween candy was found to contain a sewing needle. Initial investigation revealed that on October 31, 2015
the family was trick
-or-treating in the following areas; Russell Avenue, Druid Hill Avenue, Riverside Drive, West College, Camden Avenue, Evergreen Avenue and Monticello Avenue.

Further investigation revealed that on November 01, 2015, while attempting to eat the candy, the 15 year old child observed a sewing needle lodged inside a single piece of a Twizzler brand candy. The child alerted his parents who in turn contacted the police. Initial observation of the exterior of the packaging showed that it didn't appear to be tampered with.

Why is a fifteen yr old still trick or treating? In three years he can fight for his country!

why should there be an age limit on trick or treating???? At 15 this person is still young. Don't let these kids grow up to fast!

Why do so many have a problem with 15 yr olds Trick or Treating? Not anymore because I live literally in the middle of nowhere I don't get any Trick or Treaters but previously homes I did. I looked forward to Halloween and the kids no matter their ages provided us with just as much fun handing out candy and they did getting it. It's a fun night for everyone and not just small children.
