Salisbury police arrest man in downtown break-in
A Salisbury man was charged this weekend with breaking into a downtown business and a vehicle.
James Edward Stroy, 46, of 226 N. Long St., was charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle and misdemeanor larceny.
Officers responded to a break-in at OK Wig at the corner of West Innes and South Main streets.
A witness spotted the suspect sitting near the shop door. When officers checked the shop, they noticed a portion of the glass door broken. The suspect also had blood on his arm, possibly from the broken glass.
A bag was located with stolen items that belonged to a woman who lives on South Jackson Street.
Officers recovered the bag containing a crow bar, several DVDs, including the “Beowulf” and “Dreamgirls” movies, a couple of cell phones, jewelry, phone cards and a flashlight, among other items.
Stroy remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $10,000 bond. The investigation continues.
