LONDON (AP) — British police say a man has been charged with a drug offense after children were given bags of cocaine instead of candy during Halloween trick-or-treating.
Greater Manchester Police says officers were called after children in the town of Royton in northwest England reported finding sachets of white powder in their Halloween bags. Tests confirmed that the substance was cocaine.
Police say 23-year-old Donald Junior Green was charged Thursday with possession of drugs. A woman was arrested but released without being charged.
Police say they believe it was an isolated incident and that it appeared that the man's drugs were given to the children accidently. None of the children consumed the cocaine.
