SALISBURY – The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a string of vehicle break-ins and thefts reported Wednesday on Eastland Drive in Salisbury.
Residents of the 200 and 300 blocks of Eastland Drive reported five incidents that occurred late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. Sheriff’s deputies are reviewing evidence and believe the incidents are related.
One family reported thefts from three cars totaling nearly $500, not including damage to a windshield. Reported stolen were $225 Coach pocketbook and its contents, a Victoria’s Secret bag with $120 in merchandise, two GPS units worth $200 each and $10 in cash.
A woman told deputies that someone broke into her vehicle through the back window and took a $200 Agner pocketbook and its contents, including $500 in cash, a $400 .38 Smith & Wesson revolver and other personal items.
Some of those items were recovered behind the garage of a neighbor, who also reported that his vehicle’s window was broken but nothing was taken.
One man told deputies that someone entered his unlocked truck and stole a $250 GPS unit and $16 in cash, and another reported the theft of a $150 bicycle from his driveway.
