A Roswell police officer responded to Walmart around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, after a customer found a razor blade in a shopping cart handle. The customer alerted a store employee and the store notified the police.
This is the second incident of this kind reported in the last two months. To date, both occurred at Walmart; however, RPD Public Information Liaison Sabrina Morales said it could happen anywhere. The police recommend shoppers inspect all shopping carts prior to handling them.
The customer in the first incident was injured, with cuts to the fingers of both hands. Walmart reported no injuries during the second.
“If you see something suspicious, we suggest you contact a store employee as well as the Roswell Police Department right away,” said Morales.
