Blotter: Vehicles broken into overnight at Marriott, Comfort Suites hotels
By Shavonne Potts
SALISBURY — One handgun and other items were taken from a vehicle parked at a local hotel where Salisbury Police investigators say other vehicles were broken into overnight.
The owner of a Dodge pickup told police thieves broke a window in order to gain access to his truck. The suspect stole his handgun and vehicle registration information. He drove from Florida to buy an all-terrain vehicle. His truck was parked at the Courtyard by Marriott, located at 120 Marriott Circle, said Sgt. Travis Shulenburger.
A North Carolina Forest Service vehicle was parked at the Comfort Suites, 1040 East Innes St., where someone stole tools from the bed of a truck. One other vehicle parked at the Marriott was broken into but nothing was taken, Shulenburger said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
