Brantford police are investigating a report of a needle discovered in Halloween candy and a different report of a razor found in another collection.

They say the needle was found inserted into a piece of candy that was acquired in the Brier Park area on Saturday night.

A second report was recieved by police detailing a razor blade being found in a chocolate bar after trick-or-treating in the Eagle Place.

"I think it's an awful thing that someone would even do that, especially with everything that's going on right now," said Brantford resident Abby Petitti.

Police are reminding parents and caregivers to check candy that was collected while trick-or-treating before it’s eaten and to throw away anything that looks suspicious.

Police haven't said if there are any suspects.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Brantford Police Service at 519-756-7050.
