DOVER, N.H. (WHDH) - Police in New Hampshire are warning the public after they received a report from a resident regarding Halloween candy that may have been tampered with.

After Dover held a designated trick-or-treat night on Wednesday, one resident filed a report about candy that tasted of soap and detergent, according to the Dover Police Department.
