It's a good thing a North Plains mother checked her daughter's Halloween candy. What she found is being tested by the Oregon State Police Crime Lab.
Deputies responded to a home on NW Curtis Street. The mother told deputies she discovered a pill inside her daughter’s Halloween candy. The pill resembled a chewable Advil tablet packaged inside a roll of SweeTarts.
Deputies took possession of the pill and will send it to the state crime lab for testing. While the pill is labeled “Advil,” people who produce illegal drugs sometimes manufacture their products to resemble actual brand name products in hopes of disguising them from law enforcement and parents.
The North Plains Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind parents to please check your child’s candy obtained through trick-or-treating on Halloween.
