Approximately 70-100 small, metal tacks were recovered on the York County Heritage Rail Trail in the Glen Rock area, according to the county parks department.

County spokesman Carl Lindquist said a local woman contacted the park rangers Tuesday afternoon after finding the red and silver rounded tacks, which he said were confined to a small area.

Park rangers are investigating the incident, which Lindquist said is being described as suspicious.

There have been a couple of reports of damaged bicycle tires related to the tacks but no injuries, he added. The parks department does not believe any tacks remainĀ on the trail.

The department is urging residents who have any information regarding the incident or who spot suspicious activity on the trail to call 911.

Lindquist added that Maryland park officials noted tacks were found on the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail about a week ago, but it's unclear if the two incidents are related.
