COLERAIN TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - A Colerain Township family had to call police on Sunday after finding a razor blade in candy their child collected on Halloween.
“My son comes down and he said ‘dad, I was going to eat some candy and I checked it and this is hard,'" David Stinson said. “We opened it up and there was a razor blade sticking out of it… kind of like a blade from a box cutter.”
Stinson said he told his kids to use caution before eating their candy.
“We had checked all our kids candy. Everything seemed fine but I told the kids ‘hey, if it’s chocolate break it in half. If it’s something like that check it before you eat it,'” he said.
This is the third report made to Colerain Township police along these lines in the Pleasant Run neighborhood.
“You tell your kids ‘don’t accept candy from strangers,’ the one night they’re allowed to accept candy from strangers something like this happens,” Stinson said. “If you don’t like Halloween, don’t turn your light on and you don’t have to deal with the kids... but to intentionally try to hurt someone, that’s terrible and it’s sickening.”
In the pictures shared with FOX19 NOW, a piece of metal can be seen sticking out the side of a piece of chocolate candy.
Stinson said he contacted Colerain Township police about the matter and added the candy packaging appeared to be sealed.
