In the course of two days, drivers in the suburbs of Winston-Salem and Greensboro have found razor blades taped to gas pumps.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office received a call on May 24 about a razor blade taped to gas pump at a Sheetz on Gumtree Road in Wallburg, a suburb southeast of Winston-Salem, WFMY reported.
The sheriff’s office reviewed the gas station’s security cameras but did not see any abnormal activity among the people pumping gas, the WFMY reported.
Two days later, a man at a BP station on North Main Street in Archdale, a suburb southwest of Greensboro, warned a store employee about a razor blade at a pump, Fox 8 reported.

Based on the gas station’s security footage, Patricia Breese, the store’s manager, said the blade appeared to be taped on the pump as a man stood next to his car, WTVD reported.
The razor blade had fallen to the ground when the customer and Breese went back to check the pump, Fox 8 reported.
The Sheetz and BP are less than 18 miles apart.
