GASTONIA, N.C. -- A family in Bessemer City says they discovered metal screws and a razor blade in their Halloween candy.

Gastonia Police say the family went trick-or-treating in the area of Ametrine Lane off Blue Moss Drive in Gastonia.

Tuesday night, the father began eating some of the haul when he spotted what looked like a piece of a screw. After further inspection, the father located several more pieces that had been tampered with-- one of which even reportedly contained a razor blade.

Gastonia Police ask anyone with information on this incident to give them a call.
