'Check Your Door Handles': Razor Blades Found On Vehicles In Temecula, Prompting Investigation
TEMECULA -- Authorities are urging residents to check their door handles following two separate instances in which razor blades were discovered on vehicles in Temecula.
The first incident was reported on January 9. A deputy responded to the 41000 block of Carleton Way, regarding razor blades affixed to a car door handle.
Investigators said that the "razor blades were placed in a manner likely to cause injury," the Temecula Sheriff's Station wrote in a post on Facebook.
No one was injured during the incident.
The second incident was reported on January 10 in the 31000 block of Daniel Way. A resident reported finding a single razor blade on the front end of their vehicle.
