OAK HILL, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- UPDATE 11/2/17 @ 4:10 p.m.
Oak Hill Police say the substance found Tuesday night in a trick-or-treat bag is marijuana, not heroin like what was originally reported.

According to a release, the West Virginia State Police lab results came back as a derivative of marijuana.

"While this does change some of the dynamics of the investigation, it does not lesson the severity of the offense," said Oak Hill Police Chief Mike Whisman.

The substance was field tested on Halloween night and tested as heroin. It happened in the Hidden Valley area in the East End of Oak Hill.

No one, including the girl whose bag it was found in, was hurt.
