A New Jersey parent was just a little surprised to look through her child's Halloween-event haul and find what looked like heroin. "I looked at it twice and I said, 'Wait, this is not candy,'" she tells WPVI.

Luckily, police say the child didn't eat the substance, per, but cops did put out a Nixle alert Saturday telling parents "to check their children’s candy bags thoroughly and contact the police if they discover anything suspicious, harmful or out of the ordinary."
