♦ Every day of the week is a big day for break-ins and burglaries in Salisbury.  No community is immune from it.  It’s even happening in the historic district and the country club, but not showing up much in police reports.  Perhaps as more people unload their homes and depart the city, the Country Club will become more of a lonely island surrounded by the sound of breaking glass and crunching doorframes.  The day is coming when this formerly upper crust neighborhood will become the city’s Warsaw Ghetto. Rest assured Salisbury’s large criminal element will be finding their way into the club.  The clock is ticking.  Alleged positive thinking can only be spread so thin.

Salisbury Police sources report that Helena Davis, 54, living at 1902 E. Innes Street was the victim of a “burglary-forcible entry” at her home on sometime Sunday morning.  The burglar carted of a 39 inch flat screen Element TV (valued at $300), 30 pieces of assorted jewelry (valued at $500), and jewelry box (valued at $15).  The total haul was $815.

The burglar, who bodily forced their way into the home, left broken glass and footprints as evidence near the entry.  The crime was reported to 911 Dispatch at 10:31 a.m. and brought officers to the front door.

No arrests made so far or suspects named yet.
