Police made a disturbing discovery on Halloween weekend.

In Ohio, police issued a warning after one child found a needle in a piece of candy.

“Why….why would anyone do this?” the police department posted to Facebook.

“We’ve all heard of these types of things happening, but to actually have someone do this in our community is truly disturbing!” the department posted.

Police Chief Keith Loreno said, “Although we only are aware of 2 pieces of candy being involved, we take this seriously and are appalled that anyone would be so demented as to want to hurt children in our community.”

Take a look:

“This sewing needle was located by an observant child who reported receiving it after Trick-or-Treating in the area of N. Union, Summit, and Rock Streets in Fostoria last night. #pleasecheckyourkidscandy,” it added.

“Fostoria Police were alerted to tampered candy being distributed during the Saturday, October 30th city wide trick or treating,” Fostoria police posted on their Facebook page.

More from Western Journal:

Fostoria police said they had found a solution to concerns in light of the tampered candy that had been found.

“As a result, our community partners, ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital, reached out to us and has offered to provide X-Rays of candy distributed during Trick or Treat in Fostoria,” the post continued.

“Both Fostoria Police and ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital feel that it is best to take every reasonable action possible to keep our children safe and to help parents make an informed decision with any candy their children received,” the post read.

“Therefore, on Monday, November 1, 2021, parents can take candy received during the trick or treat in Fostoria to the hospital to be X-rayed for any potential metal objects.”
