Possible tampering of Halloween candy prompts warning

New Westminster – On November 3rd, New Westminster Police Department officers were made aware of two separate incidents of Halloween candy that appeared to have been tampered with. Police are again reminding parents and guardians to check all of their Halloween candy and report anything suspicious to the New Westminster Police Department Major Crime Unit.

“It is fortunate that nobody was hurt,” stated Staff Sergeant Scott. “It is quite shocking to think someone would try to harm children in this way and our investigators are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter.”
