Simi Valley mom claims someone put dangerous drugs in her child's candy basket at pre-Halloween event


A Simi Valley woman says someone put dangerous drugs into her children's candy-basket, when she took them to a pre-Halloween "Trick or Treat" event in a local parking lot. And police say the incident should be a reminder to other parents to be careful about what their kids are given.

 The mom says she discovered several "oxycodone" and "Xanax" pills inside a zip-lock bag that was dropped into her kids' candy haul -- pills that could have been very harmful to the children if they'd been swallowed.

The woman says the Halloween event had been promoted on Facebook, but so far police haven't identified any possible suspects when it comes to the drugs.
