Dover Parent Says Kids Trick or Treat Candy Possibly Tainted, Police Issue Warning

Taken from a Dover Police press release:

On October 30, 2019, the Dover Police Department received a report from one local resident regarding Halloween candy that did not smell or taste as normal. The resident reported the candy tasted of soap or detergent.

October 30th was the designated “trick or treat” night in Dover. The resident reported trick or treating on various streets north of downtown Dover.

Responding police officers were unable to determine that any candy had been tampered with.

The Dover Police Department urges any one with concerns about Halloween candy obtained by trick or treating should not eat it and should contact the police department.
