MANISTEE, Mich. – This Halloween, it does appear that there were a couple of cases of razor blades hidden in trick-or-treat candy.

According to Manistee police, two families have reported finding small, but sharp razor blades in Halloween candy.  One was found in a piece of Laffy Taffy and one was in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  One was found by a parent on November 1st and the other was found by a different parent on November 2nd.

The kids who received the tampered candy live about two blocks apart and were trick-or-treating in the area of 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th Streets and the area of High and Vine streets.
