WASHINGTON (WUSA) - QUESTION:
After two razor blades and a knife were found attached to the handlebars of grocery carts in the past week around the country, is this happening here?
No. We verified that police departments in Arlington County, Alexandria City, Prince George's County, Montgomery County and the District are not aware of this ever happening.

Two razor blades were found by a shopper who nicked herself on the blade while using a disinfecting wipe at a Walmart in Festus, Missouri.
"I jerked my hand away and I looked at my finger and then I looked at the handle and I couldn't believe there was a razor blade," Walmart shopper Michelle Patterson told KSDK, "The first thing I thought was what if it would have been a child in that seat."
