Church property vandalized

SALISBURY — Unfamiliar graffiti appeared this weekend on several downtown buildings and at least one vehicle.
The letters “TTC” were spray painted in black on the N.C. Probation Office building at 207 W. Kerr St., the Andrew Jackson Masonic Lodge at the corner of Fulton and Kerr streets, and the back of the First Baptist Church Family Life Center on Fulton Street (the former YMCA).
Vandals also sprayed graffiti on a First Baptist trailer parked behind the center, the driveway to the probation office and one probation car parked at the office over the weekend.
They apparently ran out of paint while tagging the car’s hood, which has “TT” in black letters and a faint outline of the “C.”
A neighbor who reported the graffiti said police told her they’d never seen the markings before.
An upward-pointing arrow, a symbol used by some gangs, accompanied the letters. Gang graffiti most recently appeared June 14 at a home on Scales Street, where vandals used red paint to spray gang symbols and names on a house and car.
Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins could not be reached for comment.
