Clarence, NY (WBEN) - The Erie County Sheriff's Office says detectives were called to a Clarence residence Wednesday night after a parent found a pin in a Nestle Crunch bar.  The detective verified a metal pin was embedded in the candy and the wrapper had been compromised.

Sheriff Howard is warning parents and anyone who went trick-or-treating in the Clarence neighborhood with the following streets: Chelsey Court and Westminster Drive, as well as an Amherst neighborhood with the following streets: Forestview Drive, Crestwood Lane, Oakview Drive, Timberlane Drive, and Timberlane Court, to collect all candy and thoroughly check the packaging for defects and foreign objects.
 
The Sheriff also reminds parents and guardians should examine all candy collected at Halloween, and the wrapper, for any defects, tears, holes, or any abnormality before it’s given to children or other individuals.
 
The Sheriff’s Office is working Kaleida Health to offer free x-rays of candy collected in the aforementioned neighborhoods.  Individuals can take the candy to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and Great Lakes Medical Imagining on Park Club Lane in Amherst for imaging during normal business hours.     
 
Anyone who went trick-or-treating in those neighborhoods and discovers a foreign object in a piece of candy is asked to preserve the candy and contact the Erie County Sheriff’s Office at 716-858-2903.
 
The Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery.  There were no reports of anyone being injured from candy collected at Halloween.
