Detectives investigate reoccurring nail problem on Ross Twp. roads

Updated:

ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Police are looking into where the nails came from that have damaged cars on three separate streets in Ross Township.

Authorities said the first incident was reported in July, and two more in November. The streets affected were Sangree, Virginia and Woodland roads.

Christine Cusick said she’s one of many neighbors wondering if someone is putting the nails down on purpose.

“It’s a shame that someone would think it’s all right to do that because it could cause damage to someone’s vehicle,” Cusick said.

Ross Township police said they’re warning drivers to be alert. Investigations said anyone caught dumping nails will be charged with a summary offense.
