WA police have issued a warning with potentially poisonous chocolates discovered.
Police are warning people not to consume any food found on the street or left in letterboxes after chocolates containing a potentially hazardous substance were found in Perth’s south over the weekend.
Reports claim the chocolates were found on High Street on Saturday.
A local resident posted on Facebook that police had knocked at her door, warning her about the find.
The resident says the chocolates, which are understood to be similar to Cadbury favourites or Celebrations, were placed along fences and letterboxes at a height accessible to children.
Forensic testing is being carried out to determine what has been put in the chocolates.
A police spokeswoman confirmed Fremantle officers were investigating a report of an unknown person or people leaving mini-chocolates like those in multi-packet such as Celebrations or Favourites near a home on High Street.
“An unknown substance was placed inside several mini chocolate bars and forensic testing is being conducted,” she said.
“No person has consumed any of these chocolates.”
People in the area have been warned to be especially vigilant, particularly with children and pets.
