♦ Salisbury Police Department sources report an attempted burglary Thursday at 4:18 a.m. at Pistol Pop’s Firearms, Salisbury’s leading firearms and ammo dealer, on 3018 S. Main Street.  Burglars attempted a forcible entry through an exterior and tried their luck by taking a tool to a sturdy rear door.  Finally they triggered an alarm when they removed an electric meter.  Apparently frustrated by Pistol Pop’s fortified structure the burglars fled the area before officers arrived.  In their wake the burglars caused an estimated $650 damage to exterior walls, storm doors, and electrical meters.  Be thankful that Pistol Pop’s Firearms took precautions to secure their building or Salisbury’s ill-intentioned might’ve acquired an armory filled with rifles, pistols, and stacks of assorted ammo.
