Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office to offer candy screening

Sheriff Jim Pendergraph invites parents of trick-or-treaters to the Civil and Criminal Courthouses to have their goodies checked by deputy sheriffs at the security stations and sent through the x-ray machines.

“In this day and time, we must take every precaution to protect our children,” says Sheriff Pendergraph.  “Since our courthouses are open anyway, this is a small service we can provide to assist parents in determining if the treats their children have are free of hidden objects.”

The security stations will be open Thursday night, October 31, from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.  The Courthouses are located at 700 E. Fourth Street.  Parking is available in the parking deck at the Civil Courthouse.
