Utility Knife Blade Found In Shopping Cart Handle

Published on July 14, 2017 by Larry Crippen

The City of Huntsville Police Department has reported the discovery of a utility knife blade attached to a local store shopping cart. Local retailers are being asked to check carts regularly. HPD is making efforts to contact as many such businesses as possible.

The blade was found following a minor injury to a customer at the Ravenwood Village shopping center. HPD is working with the store’s staff to try to find a suspect. At this time, no other tampered carts have been located and carts are being monitored to prevent future occurrences.

HPD is requesting the public’s help in reporting any similar suspicious behavior. Along with yesterday’s release about a razor blade found in a local playground slide, local retailers are being asked to check carts regularly. HPD is making efforts to contact as many such businesses as possible. The public is asked to be aware of their surroundings as well. HPD has been visiting local childcare centers to check their playground equipment as well.

“We are asking for the community’s assistance. Citizens have been instrumental in catching these kinds of criminals in the past,” said Chief Kevin Lunsford. “We are concerned about the safety of our residents.”
