UPDATE: Report of sewing needles found in Halloween candy in Pineview unfounded

Halloween candy

Ottawa Police say a report of sewing needles being inserted into halloween treats in the Meadowbrook area is unfounded.

An investigation has concluded there was no tampering with any candy by a stranger.

The matter has been closed with no charges pending.

There had been a claim that needles were found in three chocolate bars.

Police are still reminding parents to inspect all their childrens' candy before letting them eat it.
