Razor blade in trick-or-treat bag was pencil sharpener

Police in Nashua said a loose razor blade found in a child’s bag during trick-or-treating on Halloween came from a broken pencil sharpener. Sergeant Randy Dumais said the boy was using his school backpack to collect Halloween candy. After talking to the boy, police determined that the blade came from the broken sharpener. Parents are still advised to inspect and check their children’s candy and bags for any suspicious items.
