♦ The city-wide vandalism continues without letup.  Windows broken with rocks or by drive-by shooters, graffiti and gang tags on prominent buildings and houses, lawn hoses get turned on in the middle of the night to run up smart meter bills, car doors keyed–you name it.  It’s Christmas time in Salisbury and the vandals are keeping pace with the purse snatchers and vehicular break-in artists.

According to Salisbury Police sources Roy Hartford, living at 628 W. Council Street, was the victim of a “vandalism” when his 2014 grey Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan was shot up by an unknown shooter employing a handgun on Wednesday.  Bullets or pellets damaged a gas cap, bumper, fender, tires, and 2 windows.  Damage was estimated at $655. Mercifully no one was injured.

No motive was disclosed for shooting at the car and no suspects were developed.
