Ahead of Halloween, Indiana State Police is asking parents to be watchful of what their kids are bringing home.

"Parents, here is an example of what to look for in your child's Halloween candy this year," the Indiana State Police Public Information Office said on Facebook Monday.

ISP shared two photos of what at first glance, may appear to be "normal" candy - Starburst and Skittles. But ISP is asking parents to take a closer look this Halloween.

"While they are packaged and marketed to look like candy, they are not," ISP continued.

According to ISP, the pictured candies were seized over the weekend by a Trooper from the ISP Lowell post, and upon closer inspection, are marked with the word "medicated," in addition to other graphics not normally on the candy you might buy at the store.

"Please thoroughly check all candy and don't assume it's 'OK' just because it looks 'OK'," ISP's statement concluded.
