Even though tainted Halloween candy scares have turned out to be more myth than fact, the Sheriff's Office, in partnership with Olympic Security, will have court security officers on hand to x-ray candy free of charge on Halloween and the day after.
"We want Halloween to be fun and safe, and we're happy to provide x-raying of the candy for those who want the peace of mind," said Detention Bureau Captain Wayne Yarbrough.
Families can bring their bags of trick-or-treat candy to the courthouse anytime on Halloween, October 31st or November 1st from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the 75 Court Street entrance.
An adult should always inspect the candy before allowing a child to enjoy the sweet rewards of their trick-or-treating.
