Duluth police are investigating a report of tampered candy.

A call brought police to Bayview Elementary School on Monday, police said, regarding a report that trim nails had been placed in a candy bar that allegedly was obtained during the school’s fall fest.

But Proctor Schools Superintendent John Engelking said the candy’s origin is uncertain.

“We have no idea where it came from,” he said. “The candy was opened at home. I’m sure the police will get to the bottom of it.”

No suspect has been identified, police said.

Bayview Elementary is part of the Proctor schools but is located within Duluth city limits.

Police reminded people to inspect their children’s candy carefully when they come home from trick-or-treating.
