Authorities seize 1,000 drug-laced candies in Pa.

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say they confiscated more than 1,000 pieces of drug-laced candy during a house search in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Lackawanna County District Attorney Andy Jarbola says two people who live at the residence in Dunmore were arrested Thursday.

Jarbola says officers found marijuana and hashish along with candy-making material like sugar, gelatin and candy molds.

They also found 11 jars of candy pieces that tested positive for the active chemical in marijuana.

A traffic stop in nearby Dickson City led officials to get a search warrant for the house.

It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys.
