Hoosick Falls Police now say an incident in which it appeared someone inserted a needle into a Mounds bar and gave it to a child, was a prank.
And one, police say, instigated by the child which spiraled out of control.
Police interviewed the child who found the needle, who admitted trying to play a practical joke without realizing dad would call the police.
However, police in Gloversville now say they've taken several reports of needles and pins in candy collected in the area of Kingsboro Avenue from First Avenue to Sixth Avenue.
