COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Officials in Columbus say police and city
workers found razor blades taped to playground equipment in a park.

Police say they received a call Tuesday morning, telling them that people had discovered the razor blades.

Police and other officials went to the scene and found nine blades.

Tony Adams, director of the city's Parks and Recreation Department, say the blades were found taped to a slide, on a wheel children use to pull themselves off the ground and other pieces of equipment.

Adams says workers cordoned off the area and are going over it
with metal detectors to make sure all the blades have been found.

They also plan to search other parks and playgrounds.

    What is this world coming to when innocent children become the targets of such senseless crimes? It takes a sick individual...

    I believe it may be someone that lives in that area surrounding the park. A lot of school children come to the park this time of year for picnics/field trips and maybe this evil person just didn't want to deal with it this year.
