Never thought of Calvert County, Maryland as being "local" Actually never considered any land across the bay as local. You seem to be confusing where you come from (after NY, NJ and Calif) with where you live (Delmar and Ocean City).

After seeing the news report, listening to the details...and then hearing the kid talk about it...

I believe it's another hoax. One of the kids most likely shoved the needles in the candy himself, for the attention. Too many coincidences.

We take our granddaughter trick or treating then throw all that candy away and give her what we bought. Sad ain't it?

11:48 Sad, and entirely unnecessary.

The whole thing was a hoax, just like always.
