Drug-Laced Candy Found In State College

A criminal Santa has reportedly been delivering some impure presents around State College.

The State College Police have been notified that drug-laced candy is making its rounds through town. The candy is of the gummy variety, and is laced with Xanax, Valium, and other various prescription medications.

To make the candy, well, illegal, the gummy bears are either dipped or injected into a Xanax solution. Since the Gummy Bears absorb the solution, the drugs do not change the appearance of the candy. Police say that the drugged candy has been around for some time, but this is the first time they’ve seen in around State College. Police are concerned that “someone could easily overdose if they are not aware of what they are ingesting.”

Anyone with information on this activity are encouraged to contact the Police or submit an anonymous tip online.
