PELHAM, N.H. (WHDH) - Police in Pelham, New Hampshire are searching for the person who placed nails in the middle of the road on Sunday night.
“You can say that it was deliberate and that someone was trying to cause harm. What their intention was doesn’t matter. It was criminal in nature,” Pelham Police Lt. Anne Perriello said. “If someone crashed you’re talking … you could go all the way to negligent homicide, a vehicular homicide if it came down to that.”
It is unclear if any vehicles drove over the nails.
Neighbors say they’re worried more might turn up.
“You hear about something like this and it’s really disappointing,” said Kathy Garland.
“By the time we come in here, you can barely see anything around here. It’s dark. You can see we don’t have street lighting,” Arnaldo David added.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pelham police at 603-635-2411.
