SALISBURY — Someone used a metal trash can to attempt to break into a local Dollar Tree store, which was one of two that thieves attempted to gain entry.

A store employee arrived on Sunday just before the store, located at 1935 W. Jake Alexander Blvd., was to be opened. Someone used a metal green trash can to try to break a front window, said Salisbury police Lt. Lee Walker.

It appears someone also tried to break into a back door as well as cut wires to the door and an alarm. The store was last known to be secured Saturday around 10 p.m. Police said another Dollar Tree store, 395 Faith Road, sometime on Sunday. An employee arrived Sunday around 10 a.m. and found someone had tried to break into the store. In both incidents nothing was taken, Walker said.
