Woman claims cookie from Colorado made her ill

Hastings police are investigating a report of a possible drug-laced cookie and warning people to watch what they consume.

An 18-year-old Hastings woman reported Monday that she was given a snickerdoodle from a man who recently returned from Colorado, said Sgt. Steve Murphy. The woman reported the cookie didn't taste any different than any snickerdoodles she had at before.

A short time later, she reported that she wasn't feeling well and went to the hospital.
Murphy said officers are following up leads, but the cookie had been consumed and there is no way to test it now.

"This is the first time we've seen something like this," he said.

He said it's important for people to know the origin of items they consume, especially if the item originates in a state where marijuana has been legalized, such as Colorado.
