♦ Salisbury filling station convenience stores may soon gain entry to the endangered species list from early a.m. burglaries where burglars use rocks or cinder blocks to smash their way into the establishments.  Can anyone think of a convenience store within Salisbury’s City limits that hasn’t either been robbed at gunpoint or had its door windows “rocked” to break in?  Some have undergone multiple break-ins and stick-ups from 2107 until now.

According to Salisbury Police sources the Country Cupboard convenience store at 2010 Statesville Boulevard was the victim of a “burglary-forcible entry” early Friday morning when a burglar smashed a window with a blunt object in the front of store to gain entry.  A cash register drawer (valued at $250) was stolen along with $18 worth of Newport cigarettes.  It was unknown at this time if any cash was stolen or how much the window damage cost. The crime was reported to 911 Dispatch at 1:03 a.m. In 2017 the Country Cupboard suffered an embezzlement by one of its employees and a rare female INDECENT EXPOSURE.
