— It's happened before. And Cumberland County Investigators want to know who's gassing local stores. Police now say tear gas may have forced everyone out of the Spring Lake Food Lion Monday. More than two dozen people headed to the doctor after getting sick from the fumes. This is the third "gas leak" of this nature in Cumberland County this year.
