MARYSVILLE – Marysville police are investigating a report of a needle found in a candy bar while the boy was trick-or-treating near Allen Creek Elementary School Halloween night.

This morning, Emily Morth, also of Marysville, told The Globe that she and her son found a screw in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. They were trick-or-treating in the same area, on 60th.

“It is always a very good reminder to families to check the candy they receive while trick-or-treating,” police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said today.

On the Marysville Community Crime Page on Facebook, Pamela Joel says it happened to her son.  While checking his candy, she found what looked like a sewing needle or small nail inside a mini-Snickers candy bar.

Morth also commented on that same site, but hadn’t reported it to police yet. She saw Joel’s post so they took a closer look at her son’s candy, since he had been in a nearby area.

She said the wrapper on that candy bar was coming undone, as if someone had tried to glue it together after opening it.
