GENERIC: Razor, razor blade

Police are warning people to pay close attention while pumping gas after razor blades were found in the handle of a gas pump in southwestern Michigan.

Coloma Township police Chief Wes Smigielski says a newer blade and a rusty one fell from a pump handle Monday while a customer was filling up. No one was hurt.

Smigielski says the blades were in the area where a person would squeeze down to pump gas. He says six more blades were found atop the pump.

The chief says investigators reviewed hours of gas station security footage, but they weren't immediately able to determine when the blades were put there. Police are seeking tips from the public, but they say no similar reports have come in from the township or the surrounding area.
