Authorities Seize 1,000 Drug-laced Candies In Pa.

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say they confiscated more than 1,000 pieces of drug-laced candy during a house search in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Jarbola says officers found marijuana and hashish along with candymaking material like sugar, gelatin and candy molds.

They also found 11 jars of candy pieces that tested positive for the active chemical in marijuana. A traffic stop in nearby Dickson City led officials to get a search warrant for the house.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports that residents Nicholas Guffey and Mahalia Mailey have been charged with multiple counts of drug possession and manufacturing.
