Prince Rupert RCMP issue warning over Halloween candy

Prince Rupert RCMP are reminding parents to make sure they have examined the candy that their children collected on Halloween, an advisory that comes after a disturbing discovery by a Prince Rupert mother  on Friday.

Global BC is reporting the discovery of a pin in a chocolate bar  collected by one of the children of Brenda Stanley, who like many children in the city made their trick or treat rounds of the city on Thursday evening.

Ms. Stanley has since turned the chocolate bar over to the RCMP who now have the matter under investigation.

Should other parents have made similar discoveries, they should contact the local detachment of the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-627-0700

Update: The incident of tampering is believed to have possibly taken place in the areas of Smithers Street, 7th Avenue West or Sloan Avenue in the city.  The RCMP issued an update on the investigation on Sunday, posting further details on the incident to their website .
