In some breaking news out of Betoota Heights this evening, a crime scene has been established at a 6 bedroom triple garage red brick house in a quiet cul-de-sac.
Emergency services were called to the scene after reports of a couple of boomers trying to give children out mint humbugs.
Popular for it’s trick-or-treating during the Halloween run, the Heights is currently awash with kids and their parents enjoying the American themed holiday.
However, one part of the heights is in lockdown as a 73-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man were taking into custody for trying to poison children.
Speaking at the scene, police confirmed that the couple had been charged with trying to feed children the appalling boiled lollies.
“Three children are currently being attended to by paramedics and are in a stable condition,” the superintendent said.
“The two suspects were arrested and charged.”
“They continued to shout about good quality honest lollies and are currently in questioning.”
More to come.
