KESHENA, Wisconsin — Meth was found in a child’s Halloween candy bag after a visit to the Menominee Indian Reservation, according to the Menominee Tribal Police Department.

On Monday, Oct. 30, police received a complaint of a suspicious package found in a child’s candy. The bag was a small yellow baggie containing crystalline powder that tested positive for methamphetamine, according to Fox 6.

The parent of the child alerted authorities after finding the powder in the trick-or-treat bag. Luckily, the child didn’t consume the drugs, WBAY reports.

“The Menominee Tribal Police Department is asking the community to check their children’s Halloween candy thoroughly,” police wrote on Facebook on Monday. “If anything suspicious is located please contact the Menominee Tribal Police Department.”

Police encourage parents to throw away their children’s candy, to be safe, even if they sift through it and no meth turns up.
