Police say blue paint linked men to vandalism

SALISBURY — Authorities say they caught a group of men blue-handed in a vandalism case Wednesday night.
The group was walking about 9:30 p.m. near Friendly’s convenience store, which had been spray painted with blue paint. Officers found the men had two cans of blue spray paint, blue bandannas and other gang paraphernalia.
Some of the men also had blue paint on their hands.
The men were charged with vandalism, gun possession and drug possession.
Andre Christopher Heaggins, 26, of the streets of Salisbury, was charged with vandalism, possession of firearm by a felon. He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
Heaggins has previously been convicted of assault, drug possession, resisting/obstructing an officer and carrying a concealed weapon.
Tasman Jamal Stockdale, 22, of Landsdown Drive, Salisbury, was charged with injury to real property, a misdemeanor.
He has since been released under a $2,500 secured bond from the Rowan County jail.
He was previously been convicted on assault on a school official.
Derrick Lujames Torrence, 24, of McCullough Street, Statesville, was charged with vandalism and felony possession with intent to sell and deliver a controlled substance.
Police say he had 14 bags of marijuana, with a total weight of about 7/10 of an ounce.
Torrence remains in the county jail under a $20,000 secured bond. He has a previous conviction of assault on a female.
Timothy Elisha King, 20, of Old Concord Road, Salisbury, was charged with vandalism, carrying a concealed gun and possession of a controlled substance, all misdemeanors.

He remains in the Rowan County jail under a $5,000 secured bond.
Jeremy Da’Shawn Clark, 17, of Ann Street, Spencer, was charged with simple possession of a controlled substance, carrying a concealed gun and possession of a firearm by a minor.
Since Clark, the youngest of the five, is not considered a minor, but too young to possess a handgun, he was charged with the possession of a firearm. Clark remains in the Rowan County Detention Center on a $4,500 secured bond.
