Please check your child's trick-or-treating candy before you let them horse that candy down.  This isn't just a precautionary statement being thrown out there.  According to KTVB, we actually have a 7-year-old child in Meridian who came home with 'Rat Poison' mixed in with their trick-or-treat candy.

The Meridian Police Department is asking all parents to check trick-or-treat bags especially those that were out trick-or-treating in the Presidential subdivision, near Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue in Meridian.  That's where this child was when they received the rat poison in their bag.

The child has no idea which house they received the rat poison from and authorities have made this case a top priority.  Anyone with information is urged to contact the Meridian Police Department asap at (208) 888-6678.
