SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury Police are investigating the theft of a bank deposit within the city's finance department.

"This case remains open and detectives continue to thoroughly investigate all leads," Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan said.

We have made substantial progress with Director Courdry in updating the operating procedures within the Finance Department to prevent future issues of this nature."
