MILLERSVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Millersville Police Department is warning parents to be extra vigilant when it comes to their children's candy.

On Monday, a Millersville resident found a box with Hershey's Kisses on the front. However, on the inside, there were candies shaped like Hello Kitty.

Police say the Hello Kitty "candies" actually contained ecstasy and fentanyl.

Ecstasy, also known as MDMA, is a synthetic drug similar to stimulants and hallucinogens. Fentanyl is an opioid that can be up to 100 times stronger than morphine, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

After police found her ID in the can with the drugs, 22-year-old Jessika Sereniti Story was named as a person of interest by Millersville Police on Tuesday morning. If anyone knows where she can be found, you are asked to call Millersville PD at 615-859-2758.

"It's pretty disgusting and scary to think about that kind of stuff going on in your own neighborhood," Nate Fisher, a parent said.

Fisher is a father to a five-year-old girl. He's lived in the Skyline Drive neighborhood for two years and never had a scare like this.

"Usually the biggest complaint is someone's dog got loose. It's really quiet, really calm and this really makes you kind of do a reality check and kind of be on your toes a little bit more," Fisher said.

Police are now trying to figure out who left the drugs and where they came from.

Assistant Chief Dustin Carr said this is the first case of its kind in Millersville.

His biggest concern was kids being home with schools out for sickness.

"There's obviously kids in the area that could've found it and it could've been very bad," Carr said.

A neighbor found it before any kids did and called police. Investigators believe the drugs are worth around $400.

"I hope that whoever is responsible gets caught and justice is served because they obviously have a plan and know what they're doing," Fisher said.

Millersville police also sent the drugs off to be tested at the TBI.

They're asking for everyone in the neighborhood to take a look at their security cam footage to see if they spot anything unusual that could help with the case.
