The father of an 8-year-old girl in Hercules, Calif., found something he didn’t expect when checking over his daughter’s Halloween candy on Monday: a bag of meth.

After calling the police, he handed over a small plastic bag containing a “white powdery substance” that, after being tested, was revealed to be 0.1 grams of methamphetamine, according to CBS San Francisco.

Local police are asking parents to check their kids’ Halloween candy for anything suspicious; there is currently no suspect, as the girl was trick-or-treating in an area that was about a quarter of a square mile and her parents didn’t find the meth until looking through her candy at their home.

This could have been intentional or it could have been accidental and we won’t know until we speak with the person who did this,” Hercules police Sgt. Ezra Tafesse told the Contra Costa Times.

He said it was unusual but not unheard of for drugs (especially marijuana) to make it into bags of Halloween candy, according to the Times.
