Using razor blades to harm people isn’t new. Back in the day trick or treaters were given apples on Halloween night with razor blades placed in them. Yes, people are evil enough to do this activity to children. As children, mom and dad would inspect our treats before we ate them. Speaking of razor blades, yesterday WSOC-TV reported on the crime of placing razor blades on gas pump handles. Investigators are now looking at video footage along businesses on Highway 74. We hope they find the evidence needed to arrest these types of criminals. Does this criminal act sound like the behavior of a teen or adult?
