ANDOVER, Ohio — Police are warning parents to double-check their children’s Halloween candy after a scary discovery Wednesday night.

About 30 minutes after trick-or-treat ended in Andover Village, a 13-year-old boy found a round, white pill marked “L430” inside a Smarties roll, Andover police said.

Officers later determined that the pill was a generic version of Excedrin Migraine.

That’s the only incident reported in the area, but police want parents to pay special attention to Halloween candy before eating it.
