It’s reported that larceny theft was 1,179 in 2016 according to the Salisbury Police SNAG report which is up over the FBI UCR crime stats recording 1,120 incidents of larceny in 2015.  Of course Salisbury more than doubled its murders in 2016 over 2015.  In 2016, according to the Salisbury Police SNAG statistical report, recorded 11 murders  while the FBI UCR report recorded 5 murders in 2015.

Speaking of larceny, Nicole Louise Coursey, 30, allegedly Salisbury’s queen of larceny and a frequent “flyer” in Salisbury’s leading retailer Walmart, was arrested twice on Saturday by two different area law enforcement agencies (Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and the Salisbury Police).  Will this get an double-asterisk in the annals of Salisbury crime?

Nicole Louise Coursey:

According to sources in the Salisbury Police Department Nicole Louise Corsey, 30, of the streets of Salisbury, was arrested at 8 p.m. at one of her alleged favorite haunts the Walmart at 323 S. Arlington Street where she is said to be permanently banned. Spotted by loss prevention, Coursey was allegedly seen helping herself to 2 home security systems by Netgear/Arlo whose total value is estimated at $888.00 and to 2 Wahl’s hair and beard clippers whose total value is estimated at $65.72. All of these items were returned after her arrest.
