WINCHESTER, Va. (WHSV) -- An overdose in Winchester is being linked to "Smarties" candies. The candies were laced with a synthetic compound similar to LSD. That's according to the Winchester Police Department.

They say this is a hallucinogenic drug. It appears that the drug had been applied to rolls of "Smarties" candies with no one piece of candy receiving the same amount of the drug. The candies that had been tampered with contained a dark-colored wet stain.

Anyone who encounters this drug is asked to contact law enforcement or call the Crime Solvers HOTLINE at 540-662-4131.
