KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes OPP is investigating after strange groups of objects were found in the middle of the road in Burnt River.
Christina Handley owns a farm on Burnt River Road in Burnt River. She found the first items on July 18th around 8am in front of their farm. There was a piece of raw meat, a needle, some change and a glass with a clear liquid in it. Handley cleaned it up, without touching it, and called police.
On July 20th it happened again. This time there was a pear, a couple of plastic cups, and what looks like some meat in rolled oats and other items.
“No syringe this time but still very weird and creepy.” Handley says.
Police agree it is a strange case but would not release any more information.
“Yes we are investigating, at this point police do not believe there is any threat to public safety, and there have been no reports of it occurring elsewhere in Kawartha Lakes, or anywhere else as far as we are aware.” Constable Laura Newberry told Kawartha 411 News.
Handley says she is not really scared by the strange happening but is concerned for small children and animals should they come across something like this in the village.
“Who knows what is in all that stuff. If the syringe wasn’t involved in the first photo, I probably wouldn’t be too concerned at all.” she said.
Any similar instances should be reported to police.
