Meth packet found in trick-or-treater’s bag of candy


One Wisconsin parent was alarmed on Sunday when a bag of meth was discovered in a trick-or-treat bag. Police are warning parents to be on the lookout for the substance which, in this case, was contained in a flimsy Ziploc bag.

If it gets on children’s other candy and is ingested, it can be extremely dangerous.

The incident occurred on Sunday during a Halloween event in the downtown area of the reservation and it is unclear if the meth was dropping in the bag intentionally or by accident.

Menominee Tribal Police are urging parents to check their children’s candy if they have been trick or treating in the Keshena area on the Menominee reservation.

“It is a Ziploc bag. Unfortunately, Ziploc baggies can open up, we don’t know if there’s more out there. Right now this is an isolated incident, but if there was more out there, if it does get through the Ziploc baggies and kids are touching this candy, that can be very dangerous to them. Even the parents,” Joshua Lawe, a Menominee Tribal Police detective, said.
