Was it a trick or a treat?
Chocolate bars, pennies and oranges are the usual fare for trick-or-treaters, but youngsters in Manchester enjoying Halloween fun were apparently given bags of white powder at one house - and it wasn't sherbet dip.
Greater Manchester Police have confirmed children reportedly received bags of cocaine in their Halloween loot, as they made their way round Mendip Close.
Shocked parents phoned police as their gleeful children emptied out their haul - including what appeared to be snap bags of white powder.
A 23-year-old Royton man, Donald Junior Green, has been charged with possession of Class A drug after parents reported the incident.
Greater Manchester Police said in a statement: "Shortly before 7.50pm on Wednesday 31 October 2012, police received a report of drugs being found by children.
"Snap bags containing white powder were taken to the police and examined. It was confirmed that the bags contained cocaine.
"The bags had been given to children on Mendip Close, Royton, who were out trick or treating.
"Donald Junior Green is due before Oldham Magistrates' Court on Friday 2 November 2012.
"A 21-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs and was later released without charge."
Superintendent Catherine Hankinson said: “The parents and police acted quickly when this report was made, in the interests of public safety.
“We understand this to be an isolated incident.”
