Idaho Police: Rat poison found in 7-year-old's Halloween candy

Posted: Updated:

Meridian, IDAHO - The Meridian Police Department says a 7-year-old child found a bag of rat poison in their Halloween trick-or-treating haul.

The department says the child was trick-or-treating in the Presidential subdivision off of Eagle Road. After returning home, a parent found a small baggy of rat poison. 

Police do not have a suspect and the child does not remember which house it came from. 

"If you had a child trick or treating in the Presidential subdivision police urge you to sort through your child’s candy and contact the Meridian Police Department if you discover something similar," the department said on Facebook. "While it is extremely rare for something like this to happen, parents should always go through their children’s trick or treat candy to make sure nobody is trying to hurt your child."

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Meridian Police Department at 208-888-6678.
