Galion police investigating after boy’s Halloween candy may have been ‘laced’

GALION, Ohio — Police have started an investigation after a little boy got sick Sunday night after trick-or-treating in Galion.

According to a Facebook post from the Galion Police Department, the investigation is questioning whether there was candy given out in Galion that may have been “laced” with something.

The boy allegedly got sick after he gathered his Halloween candy.

Police followed up with another post, saying the boy was trick-or-treating on the west side of Galion in the Arlington, Highland and Tidd area.

Police said the boy is being treated at the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

At this time, police say they cannot give out any additional details regarding the investigation; however, they remind parents to “please check your children’s candy that was received today while trick or treating.
