A Wilson County Sheriff’s deputy was called out to a Mt. Juliet residence after a sharp object was found in a piece of Halloween candy.
The deputy took a report from a mother who said she discovered a needle in a Lifesavers gummy candy that her child collected on Halloween. While inspecting the candy, she noticed the corner of the wrapper was missing and saw the needle upon further inspection.
According to Lt. Scott Moore, the candy was collected in the Langford Farms area of Wilson County and in an area of Davidson County.
“As this incident is currently being investigated, we urge all citizens to please check all of your candy to ensure that it has not been altered and always check to make sure the candy is properly sealed,” said Lt. Moore.
