Halton Police are alerting residents in a specific Milton neighbourhood about a potentially dangerous substance found inside a child’s Halloween trick-or-treat bag last night.
A mother was inspecting her 12 year old daughter’s bag of candy and discovered a mini vodka bottle containing a clear fluid.
The seal on the bottle had been compromised and was leaking slightly when it was turned over to police.
Officers were not certain if the liquid was indeed alcohol and the bottle sent away for analysis to identify what it is.
Police have determined that the bottle was placed in the child’s bag by a resident in the area of Childs Drive and Ledwith Drive.
Parents who had children trick-or-treating in this neighbourhood are urged by police to thoroughly inspect the candy.
