Police warn parents about pills shaped like candy ahead of Halloween


Police are posting warnings for this Halloween, telling parents to look closely at what children bring home after trick-or-treating.

The Jackson Police Department posted a photo of what appears to look like candy with images of dice, superheroes and movie companies. But these are actually pills that could not only be dangerous, but deadly if a child ingests them, WLBT reported.

The items are actually shaped Ecstasy, WLBT reported.

Police suggest ‘When in doubt, throw it out’ when it comes to kids’ Halloween candy.
