Police say heroin was found in a child's trick-or-treat bag in West Virginia.

Oak Hill Police Chief Mike Whisman told news outlets that the three-year-old girl's mother found a dark substance wrapped in a glove, and called police.

Preliminary results from a field test revealed it was heroin.

No one was hurt.

The mother, Stacey Norris, told WOAY-TV she initially thought the glove was the result of someone playing a joke.
