RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Washoe County sheriff's office is offering up its X-ray machine to parents who want to screen their children's Halloween candy.
Washoe law enforcement officials say parents will be able to review the candy at the district courthouse in downtown Reno on Monday and Tuesday.
The X-ray machine detects metal objects, but sheriff officials say parents should dispose of any candy they might have been tampered with.
