GLOCESTER – A traffic stop in Glocester Sunday night led to an arrest and the seizure of more than 200 individually packaged replicas of popular sugary cereal brands made with marijuana.
Officers seized the bags of “Rice Krispies Treats,” “Trix Crispie Bars,” and “Cocoa Pebbles Crispie Bars,” from the stopped vehicle, and are now warning residents to take caution to such keep products out of the hands of children with Halloween fast approaching.
According to police, the incident began with a traffic stop while Officer Andrew Uriati & K9 Tate were on patrol. In addition to seizing more than 200 individually packaged edibles, officers also reportedly seized cash from the suspect.
The department warned residents that on Halloween, parents should always inspect their children’s candy before allowing them to eat it.
“These treats can easily be mistaken for the popular name brand snacks that you could purchase in the store,” they noted. “Thank you and stay safe.”
