Police are urging parents to check their children’s candy collected Sunday, November 1 at trick-or-treat in Bethlehem.

Officers say they’ve found several pieces of candy that appeared to have graphite from a mechanical pencil injected into them.

The suspicious candy was reportedly collected around the Wildwood acres area, between Oak Drive Circle and Chestnut Lane.

“As a village official, I’m upset; because we’re such a small town, this shouldn’t happen in Bethlehem. There’s no need for this to happen in Bethlehem. As a parent; I’m angry, because you’re putting a kid’s life in danger,” said Bethlehem Mayor, Tim Bishop.

Mayor Bishop, strongly urges all parents to check their children’s candy, and if Bethlehem residents find anything unusual to report it to Village police immediately.

Officials in Bethlehem also say they’re happy with the turn out for their Halloween Festival where they were able to ensure children left with candy that is safe to eat.
