Candy tampering report being investigated by Scottsbluff Police

Candy tampering report being investigated by Scottsbluff Police

Authorities in western Nebraska are investigating a nail found in a Halloween candy bar that was given to a child who was trick-or-treating.

The Scottsbluff Star Herald reports that the Tonja McNeal contacted local police on Wednesday after her oldest son went to bite into the Snickers bar and discovered the nail. McNeal says it was sticking out of the top, and she posted a photo of it on Facebook to warn other parents.

Scottsbluff Police Capt. Tony Straub told KNEB News Police are investigating the incident but confirmed there there have been no other  reports of candy tampering.  Straub said in coming days they may have more information.

Straub  reminds parents to always check their children’s candy for abnormalities.
