GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — The Campbell County Sheriff's Office is investigating a series of incidents involving razor blades at the North Antelope-Rochelle coal mine in Campbell County.

Officials say someone put a razor blade in a pair of gloves used for working with high-voltage equipment in October. A worker suffered a superficial cut.

In November, a worker suffered a razor blade cut when he got into a pickup. The blade had been placed in the truck seat.

Peabody Energy is also investigating the incidents. The company is offering a $10,000 reward for information that could solve the crimes.
