According to the police department, some meth pills that look just like candy are being circulated.

These SweetTart look-alike meth pills are finding their way into the hands of some youngsters.

In a Facebook post by the Dublin Police, a harsh warning was given to parents about staying alert.

“Please be aware that the Dublin Police Department is seeing methamphetamine pills in our community,” the Facebook post read. “These pills are stamped and resembled to look like specific candies. Please make sure you check your children’s candy and report any suspicions to the Dublin Police Department.”

While the incident seems to be isolated to Dublin, parents everywhere should heed some caution with their children this Halloween.

This is just another reminder to parents to inspect the candy that their children receive from strangers during trick-or-treating.

While your children may be fast to eat that candy right up, take a moment to look for anything that seems suspicious.

With this small precaution, you can prevent your children from ingesting something they shouldn’t, so they can have a safe and fun Halloween without consequences.
