Police in a Michigan town are warning residents to be vigilant after razor blades were found attached to the handles of a gas pump.
The blades were found Monday at a Speedway in Coloma Township, Coloma Township Police Chief Wes Smigielski told MLive.com. Two blades -- one newer and the other rusty -- fell from the handle of a pump as a customer was getting gas, he said.
Police found six more razor blades lying on top of the gas pump.
Now, investigators are trying to determine who placed the razor blades on the pump and why. Smigielski said police have reviewed “hours and hours” of gas station security camera footage, but haven’t yet found anything.
The Coloma Township Police Department wrote in a Facebook post that residents should “be vigilant and inspect (gas pump) handles prior to use.”
