Meth found among Halloween trick-or-treat candy

Menominee Tribal Police said a parent on the reservation in northeastern Wisconsin found a packet of methamphetamine among her child’s trick-or-treat Halloween candy.

The parent turned the small packet of crystal powder over to police early Monday and officers said it tested positive for meth. The child did not ingest the powder.

Police said at this point they do not know if the meth was handed out intentionally.

WLUK-TV said police are urging parents to check their children’s candy if they have been trick-or-treating in the Keshena area on the Menominee Indian Reservation, about 160 miles north of Milwaukee.

Tribal officials said no area is immune to problems with drugs, and everyone should take precautions.
