Police say a southern New Jersey man made up a story about finding needles in Halloween candy.
Gloucester Township police say 37-year-old Robert Ledrew on Sunday told them he found four sewing needles in four separate pieces of candy from trick-or-treating.
But officers discovered Ledrew had posted a photo of a needle and comments about the incident on Facebook the day before.
Authorities have charged Ledrew with making a false police report.
It’s not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the charge.
