A Tootsie Roll will be sent to the Wisconsin State Crime Laboratory for testing after attendees at last weekend’s New Dublin Grand Parade told police they experienced rashes or numbness from eating candy they received there.
So far about 10 complainants have been filed and New London Police Chief Jeff Schlueter said they are still unsure what’s causing it. We’re not sure if it’s related to the candy or not. The Tootsie Roll that will be sent to the crime lab was provided by a complainant who claimed it caused numbness or a rash, Schlueter stated in a news release on Monday. Anyone who felt “unusual symptoms” after eating candy from the parade is asked to call NLPD at 920-982-8505.
