Schaumburg Police Investigate Possible Halloween Trick-or-Treat Candy Tampering

Schaumburg police received two reports Sunday of possible tampering with Halloween candy.

Both reports involved candy with a foreign object described as a needle or pin inserted into candy that was obtained by kids trick-or-treating in residential areas of Schaumburg. No injuries were reported related to incidents of foreign objects in candy.

Parents are advised at a minimum to closely inspect any Halloween candy before allowing their children to eat the candy.

Any opened candy or candy with damaged packaging should not be eaten, and should not be discarded until the police get a chance to investigate the candy, if necessary.

Schaumburg residents who discover any tampered or suspicious candy are urged to contact Schaumburg police at 847-882-3586.
