Anxiety medication reportedly found in child's Halloween bag, Newtown Township police say

NEWTOWN TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Police in Bucks County, Pennsylvania are asking parents and guardians to check their children's Halloween candy after prescription anxiety medication was reportedly found in a child's candy haul.

The medication was inside a plastic baggie, not in a candy wrapper, said police.

This is the only known incident of its kind, but Newtown Township Police are warning parents out of an abundance of caution.
