Lompoc Police: Metal pins found in Halloween candy

Lompoc Police Department

The Lompoc Police Department said Thursday night that they're getting reports of metal pins found in candy collected by local children on Halloween night. 

The Department said a couple of citizens filed reports involving Kit-Kat candy bars received during trick-or-treating. Neither child was hurt because of the pins.

An investigation into the matter is underway and the Lompoc Valley Medical Center has agreed to assist the investigation with x-ray equipment.

Also, any concerned family can call the Medical Center during normal business hours to arrange for a scan of candy collected.
