Just in time for Halloween 🎃
California law enforcement authorities recently issued a warning to parents as Halloween approaches following the seizure of roughly 12,000 fentanyl pills packaged in prominent candy boxes at Los Angeles International Airport.

“With Halloween approaching, parents need to make sure they are checking their kids’ candy and not allowing them to eat anything until it has been inspected by them,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department declared in a press release.
“If you find anything in candy boxes that you believe might be narcotics, do not touch it and immediately notify your local law enforcement agency,” the agency continued.

Per a report by Lorenz Duchamps at Epoch Times, this large fentanyl seizure occurred on October 19, 2022 after Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents apprehended a suspect who tried to blow past the airport’s security screening with multiple candy bags and other snacks.
Once they inspected the packages, authorities “discovered that inside the ‘Sweetarts,’ ‘Skittles,’ and ‘Whoppers’ candy boxes were fentanyl pills,” the release noted.

The suspect drug trafficker fled the scene until law enforcement detained him. Officials reported that the suspect has now been identified and an investigation is currently being conducted.
