Wrapped needle found in candy appears accidental

(ALGONAC) -- A wrapped insulin needle found in a bag of Halloween candy in Algonac appears to have gotten there accidentally. St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon says a deputy was called to a home on Marine City Highway Thursday regarding a needle found in a bag of candy.  The caller stated that the kids had been trick-or-treating in the area of Columbia and Liberty Streets in the city of Algonac. When they got home, their mother checked the bags and found the needle, which was described as a small insulin needle, still in the cellophane wrapper. The deputy checked the candy in both bags and found nothing that would indicate the candy had been tampered with. At the request of the mother, the candy was disposed of. Sheriff Donnellon says there were no other reports of any issues with needles or any other substance in trick-or-treat bags in Algonac or elsewhere in St. Clair County.
