MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - It's an urban legend come to life, a razor in a Halloween candy bucket.

Ricki Worrell of Myrtle Beach said she took her 10-year-old daughter trick-or-treating down maybe two or three of the streets in her neighborhood, Myrtle Beach Golf and Yacht Club, before calling it a night.

When they returned home, Worrell says they dumped all the candy collected out on the table to see what her daughter had received, and with several larger items in the bucket, she didn't immediately notice the BIC razor.

"I could not believe my eyes," Worrell comments.

The razor that her daughter came home with appeared to still be in it's original package, but Worrell worries what could have happened if she had not checked the contents first, and what if other children received a razor and their parents don't know.

"It could have been a joke, but it's just unacceptable," she adds.

Worrell says that she has contacted her neighborhood HOA about the incident.

If you think your child may have brought home something suspicious after a night of trick-or-treating, contact your local authorities.
