Salisbury Police are looking into a number of vehicle break-ins that occurred recently in three area neighborhoods. Thieves took personal belongings from the vehicles, all of which were unlocked, officials said.

Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said two break-ins were reported on Friday in the Forest Glen neighborhood and three were reported in the Country Club Hills and Eagle Heights neighborhoods on Sunday.

“All of the cars were unlocked, and the items left in them in plain view,” Lingle said.

She said the items that were taken included change, purses, wallets, checkbooks and a handgun.

Police are investigating break-ins on Chalfont Court and Glenview Drive in the Forest Glen neighborhood, both of which were reported on Friday.

Other break-ins occurred on Kingsbride Road and Waverly Circle, both on Sunday in the Country Club Hills neighborhood, as well as Windsor Drive in the Eagle Heights subdivision.

Lingle said all of the break-ins occurred at night.

She encourages anyone who sees suspicious activity or any person who they may have not seen previously in the neighborhood to contact law enforcement.

Lingle also advised that residents not approach anyone suspicious, but said if they are able to get a license plate number or description of that person, to pass it along to police.

She also recommends residents lock their doors and not leave personal belongings in plain view or inside vehicles.

Anyone with information about these vehicle break-ins or who believes their vehicle was broken into is asked to contact Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333.
