HALIFAX – The RCMP has confirmed it is investigating a second case of a pin being found in Halloween treat in the Cole Harbour area.

According to Cpl. Greg Church, a sewing pin was discovered in a treat collected in the Astral Drive area.

Police were called to Astral Drive Junior High on Monday after a student found the pin inside of a small candy bar when she took a bite.

It is the second reported instance in the Halifax Regional Municipality, and both originated from the same area.

On Monday, a woman from Eastern Passage said her daughter found a pin in a chocolate bar she received while trick-or-treating in Cole Harbour.

In both cases, there were no injuries.

The RCMP is still investigating that incident, and is asking anybody with information to contact police or Crime Stoppers.

On Tuesday, the Cape Breton Regional Police said it was investigating a report of a needle found in a chocolate bar from a trick-or-treater in North Sydney.
