Halifax police investigate another report of razor blade in Halloween treat

A 13-year-old Dartmouth girl found a blade inserted inside the wrapper of a chocolate bar.

Halifax Regional Police are investigating another report of a razor blade inserted into Halloween candy.

A 13-year-old Dartmouth girl was going through her Halloween candy Tuesday morning when she found a razor blade inserted inside the wrapper of a chocolate bar, police said in a news release.  

The girl, who lives on Pinecrest Avenue, had been trick-or-treating in the area of Albro Lake Road, Lancaster Drive and surrounding streets.

Forensic investigators will examine the candy bar for any evidence. 

In another suspected tampering incident, a Spryfield boy going through his Halloween candy cut his finger on a razor blade stuck in a candy bar on Monday evening. 

"Police encourage parents and children to be vigilant in checking all Halloween candy gathered and to report any incidents of candy tampering to police," the release said.
