Nails damage vehicle tires
An employee of Ute Water reported that some of the company’s vehicles were getting flat tires while working on a pipeline in an area off 34 Road and C Road on Wednesday, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department. Employees reported finding about 10 pounds of new nails that were bent into two angles. Damage to the vehicles was estimated at $800.
The employee said some people who live in the area have asked what they are doing there and that they may be concerned about the presence of the company employees. Deputies were trying to determine Wednesday whether the nails were left accidentally or intentionally, the Sheriff’s Department said.
