Police: Bicycles damaged by tacks on Courtney Campbell Causeway

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) – Tampa Police said they received several calls from bicyclists who were riding over the Courtney Campbell Causeway pedestrian bridge when they discovered thumb tacks and carpet tacks in their tires.

Police said they started receiving the calls around 11:30 Sunday morning. When officers responded, police said only five victims wanted to give their information and prosecute.

Police said the total damage to the bicycles was approximately $610.00 and that there were numerous others affected, but they did not want to participate in the investigation.

Police said local authorities removed as many tacks as we could find and warned everyone they saw of the danger.
