CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Mo. – Deputies with the Christian County Sheriff’s Office metal spikes inserted in the roadway Sunday between Nixa and Highlandville according to their Facebook page.

They appear to be large files that have been turned into spikes, then hammered into the roadway asphalt. Deputies say they were inserted in such a way that make them difficult for drivers to see.

The first set was located on Aspen between White Ash and Harris. Another set was located on Aspen just south of Green Ash. Law enforcement is asking that drivers pay extra attention to the road.

At this point, officials do not know who is responsible for setting the spikes or any potential motives.

If you have any information on any suspicious vehicles or people possibly involved in this or any other area, call the Christian County Sheriff’s Office.
