Oak Bluffs Police warn of prescription medicine mixed with Halloween candy


The Oak Bluffs Police Department issued a bulletin warning that Halloween candy must be examined thoroughly after a parent reported finding a loose prescription pill in with their child’s candy. Sgt. Michael Marchand told The Times it was Adderall.

“The family trick-or-treated in the neighborhoods of Vineyard Avenue, Shawmut Avenue, Norris Avenue, and Franklin Avenue,” the bulletin states. “This appears to be an isolated incident;, however, if you find something suspicious, report it immediately to the Oak Bluffs Police Department.”

Det. Jeffrey LaBell is investigating.
