    A 6-year-old came home with a small bottle of vodka among the candy gathered during Halloween, according to Walpole Police.

    Walpole Police wrote on their Facebook page that the youngster was trick-or-treating on Haynes and Vine streets. Her grandmother noticed the apple flavored vodka in her treat bag when she got home.

    Following the discovery, police were urging parents to check their children's candy bags and contact the police if they received similar items.

    Families in the neighborhood were in a bit of shock because they say they know their neighbors.

    "I can’t believe someone would do that," said Walpole resident, Ann-Marie Hockman. "Has everyone gone crazy or what?"

    Hockman told necn that she's glad everything her two boys got was safe.

    "It's just sad they get so excited about Halloween," she said.
