Vandals hit Salvation Army headquarters

Staff report

SALISBURY — The Salvation Army of Rowan County reported Sunday that vandals struck its headquarters building over the weekend and damaged food, appliances and clothing donations.

The vandalism occurred at the worship and service center at 620 Bringle Ferry Road and was discovered by Capt. Karl Dahlin as he was getting ready for the Salvation Army church service Sunday morning.

Someone used a pickax taken from a tool shed to break into a walk-in freezer and refrigerator on the site, according to reports. Donated clothing and food were thrown around.

Some parts of the building also were spray-painted.

No estimate on the damage was given. The headquarters worship and service center is a separate location from the Salvation Army Family Store, which is located at 521 Jake Alexander Blvd.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is being asked to contact Salisbury Police or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at http://tips.salisburyrowancrimestoppers.org, or call 1-866-639-5245.
