Halifax Regional Police are investigating two separate incidents of alleged candy tampering after Halloween.
Police responded to the 100 block of Pinecrest Drive in Dartmouth around 9 a.m. Tuesday. They say a 13-year-old girl was sorting through her Halloween candy when she found a razor blade inserted inside the wrapper of a chocolate bar.
Police say the girl had been trick-or-treating in the area of Albro Lake Road, Lancaster Drive and surrounding streets.
In a separate incident, police are investigating after a 12-year-old boy cut his thumb on a razor blade that was poking out of a chocolate bar Monday evening.
Police responded to the Danforth Road area of Spryfield around 8:30 p.m.
The boy’s father posted about the incident on Facebook, saying the chocolate fell out of his son’s bag and he cut his thumb when he went to pick it up.
The boy had been trick-or-treating in the Governors Brook area of Spryfield and had visited roughly 150 houses.
Police are urging all parents and children to check their Halloween candy and to report any incidents of candy tampering.
