LONGMONT, Colo. — Police in Longmont are investigating why barbed wire was strung across Sugar Mill Road last week.

The investigation comes after a vehicle was damaged Friday night, causing it to be towed.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Joel Post said investigators believe about 30 feet of wire was strung about 3 feet above the road in front of the old, abandoned sugar factory.

Post is advising residents to be careful driving along the road between Alpine and North 119th streets.
