Still Searching For Answers In String Of Burglaries


Investigators from four different agencies continue to collaborate on a rash of hole in the wall burglaries in at least three different counties in the east.

There are more than 30 hole in the wall breaking and entering cases in the east since January of 2012.

Pitt County authorities say they're looking into 20 store break-ins. Greenville is focusing on eight of their own, while Beaufort County has 2 hole in the wall cases, along with Martin County. Edgecombe County has just one.

Chris Yelverton co-owns AZ and Worldwide Wireless in Greenville. He caught the thieves on surveillance video inside his store and can't believe there's still no arrests. Yelverton says, "It's just mind boggling these guys haven't been caught yet. Like what's the hold up, what's going on? I need some answers."

Authorities say in all of the cases, the men stole money from a safe or ATM. They cut open a wall to gain entry and disabled the alarm systems in many cases

The Pitt-Greenville Crimestoppers increased reward money to help bring these guys to justice.
