A “Treat” Not to Be Sniffed At: Trick-or-Treaters Receive Bag of Cocaine

A bunch of kids out trick or treating in the north of England got a surprise “treat” in the form of a bag of coke. Metro reports:

Greater Manchester police said two people were arrested in relation to the incident, with a man due to appear in court tomorrow.

When the parents noticed the bags of white powder, they called police, who confirmed the substance was cocaine, a class A drug.

The children had been out trick-or-treating on Mendip Close, Royton.

A 23-year-old man, Donald Junior Green, has been charged with possession of class A drugs.

He will appear before Oldham magistrates’ court on Friday November 2.

A 21-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs but released without charge.

In a statement, Superintendent Catherine Hankinson said: ‘The parents and police acted quickly when this report was made, in the interests of public safety.

‘We understand this to be an isolated incident.’

    The chap was obviously much too high and zonked on marijuana to have done this.

    Weed is no good. Pass it on and help take a bite out of crime.
