Police investigate nail in Nebraska Halloween candy bar

November 2, 2018

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) — Authorities in western Nebraska are investigating a nail found in a Halloween candy bar that was given to a child who was trick-or-treating.

The Scottsbluff Star Herald reports that the Tonja McNeal contacted local police on Wednesday after her oldest son went to bite into the Snickers bar and discovered the nail. McNeal says it was sticking out of the top, and she posted a photo of it on Facebook to warn other parents.

Scottsbluff Police Capt. Tony Straub says authorities are investigating the incident, but didn’t provide other details. He reminds parents to always check their children’s candy for abnormalities.
