This candy was reportedly gathered by a child trick or treating on Halloween. On top of the candy was a noticeable green particulate substance. The parent believes the candy was received while trick-or-treating in the area of 2nd to 4th street west of U.S. 31. The Police Department encourages everyone to carefully inspect all candy for damaged packaging or suspicious substances. The candy will be forwarded to the Michigan State Police Crime lab for testing purposes. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Manistee Police Department at 231-723-2533
