Meth packet found in Wisconsin trick-or-treater's bag

Officers say it tested positive for meth.

The child did not ingest any of the substance.

"Be resilient", Warrington said.

Authorities then instructed all residents to throw away their children's candy and the bags it was collected in at government collection sites.

"Be resilient. Nowadays, nothing is off the table". Police nationwide are warning parents to double check their children's candy before they are allowed to eat any of it.

Police are concerned the child, or other children in the same neighbourhood, could have been exposed to meth. But it's part of a greater problem for the area, according to police chief Mark Waukau. "We take care in protecting our children, our elders and our families".

"It was kind of ironic that this happened at the same time we're trying to do some prevention, things that bring our community together because of problems that we're facing with the drug issues".

Another trick-or-treating event has been organized in Keshena for Tuesday night in response to the incident, in order to give children an opportunity to celebrate Halloween. The school said it would provide candy for students. The parent turned the suspicious package over to police.
