SALISBURY, N.C. — A Salisbury woman reported to police that her outbuilding was vandalized with spray paint yesterday.
Dianne Perez of Skyline Drive said that her children were playing in the yard when she noticed letters spray painted on the side of her outbuilding that read, “East Side Bloods.” Profanity was also sprayed on the side of the building.
The Salisbury Police Department is not certain if the incident is related to the gang-based vandalism of another Salisbury home owned by Honore Alexander reported June 16. In that incident, Alexander’s home and car were painted with various gang signs and profanity.
Police are investigating the incident.
