SALISBURY — Police are looking into reports that 13 vehicles that were ransacked in three different Salisbury apartment complexes on Friday.

A police spokesman said all of the vehicles were unlocked.

Salisbury police responded to the Laurel Pointe Apartment complex, located at 100 Laurel Pointe Circle, where five unlocked vehicles were ransacked, said spokesman Lt. Lee Walker. A wallet was reported stolen from one vehicle after the discoveries were made sometime around 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Friday.

Three vehicles were also ransacked at the Westside Manor Apartment complex, located at 2345 Statesville Blvd. Thieves took $368 from one vehicle there and the theft was discovered shortly before 4 a.m. Friday.

Thieves broke into six vehicles parked at Lakewood Apartment complex, which is located at 500 Lakewood Drive. One wallet was stolen from a vehicle, but it did not contain cash. The owner’s credit cards and identification card were taken.
