You're thinking to yourself "I didn't see a deer, was it a piece of debris?" You get out and see that it was a 40-pound rock that was in the road, and now you've got a flat tire and messed up front bumper. This is what has been happening in the Lakeville area and the Scott County Sheriff's Office is looking for answers as to who is placing large rocks and pieces of concrete on area roads.
