SALISBURY — An apparel company has for the third time been the victim of theft after someone stole 10 boxes of T-shirts from a South Main Street storage facility.

Royce Apparel Inc. reported on Wednesday someone stole 10 boxes of T-shirts sometime between Nov. 12 and Nov. 16. The owner said he’d given two people permission to take broken pallets that were sitting on the loading dock.

He told a Rowan County Sheriff’s deputy that he did not give them permission to take any T-shirts. Earlier this year, someone stole $150,000 worth of T-shirts from the company. The storage unit is located at American Century Home Fabric, 5200 S. Main St.

In that incident, someone cut a hole into a fence large enough to drive a vehicle through. Someone rummaged through the storage unit and reportedly stole about 30,000 shirts. A security camera feed was cut at that time. The site was the former Cannon Mills’ Swink Plant.

In 2019, a break-in at the building resulted in the arrest of a man and woman who were charged with stealing copper tubing.
