Police in Hamburg are investigating a claim that a needle was found in a fun-sized bag of Halloween candy.

The person told police that a needle was poking through a bag of Whoppers, the chocolate-covered malted milk orbs.

Police said that person reported trick-or-treating on several streets in the neighborhood near Charlotte Avenue Elementary, including Parkside Avenue, Sherburn Drive and Martha Place.

Anyone who trick-or-treated in that area should double-check their stash to make sure everything is safe.
