The parents state that when they checked their child’s candy, they found that a “DOTS” candy box had been opened and that the candy had been replaced with rocks (and then resealed), DA Gregory Oakes said.

“I just received information from a constituent that a bag of M&Ms that was received in the town of Mexico was tampered with as well. I cannot independently verify this information, but it comes from a reliable source,” the DA added just before 11 p.m. “I cannot say whether the M&Ms were distributed by the same person as the DOTS candy or if there is a connection between the two candies.”

Parents who took their children trick-or-treating in the town of Mexico should check their children’s candy packages, as the rocks can pose a choking / safety hazard, he said.

There have been no reports of possible tampering elsewhere.
