Randolph Police Investigating Possible Foreign Substance On Candy

10/29/17 – The Randolph Police Department is investigating concerns of tainted candy being handed out to trick-or-treaters in the village. Police Chief Michael Klavekoske first reported on Facebook Saturday evening that Now and Later candies were apparently dipped in motor oil. A few hours later, the department said that they were “confident” that they had located the residence in Randolph where the candy was given out. The people who reported the tainted candy were interviewed and, based on that information, officers were able to narrow down the specific area in the village where the candy had been handed out. Authorities then received a call from a person living in that area saying that they had given out the brand of candy in question. After police interviewed the residents and determined that nothing was done to tamper with or contaminate the candy with a foreign substance, officers traced the candy to the point of purchase. Chief Klavekoske says his department is following-up on their investigation with the vendor in an attempt to identify what, if any, foreign substance was placed on the candy.
