Sheriff: Parents sickened after eating meth-laced Halloween candy

ALOHA, Ore. – Two Oregon parents were sickened after eating their children’s Halloween candy, which later tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The children didn’t eat any of the Sour Patch Kids candy they collected while trick-or-treating in Aloha Wednesday evening, according to officials.

The parents told deputies the candy appeared sealed when they ate it Halloween evening. After feeling ill the next day, they  called 911 and were taken to an area hospital for evaluation.

Officials said in a news release that deputies performed a field test of the gummy candy, which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Deputies placed the candy into evidence and the sheriff’s office posted a warning to other families on social media.

It’s not yet known which house gave out the candy.

    Well they also locked up black gentleman because there was white powder on the floor of his car next to the window. He did have priors for cocaine they did a field test and it tested positive for coke. He swore up and down it was drywall dust and after he spent 90 days in jail wouldn’t you know it came back as actual drywall dust. Hmm then the police said there are over a 100 common things that will test positive for road side test that are NOT actual drugs so let’s just wait a few months to get the actual results in. If it is meth than by all means lock those people up as long as Humanly possible better yet death. If not then what?
