Police: Six Car Break-Ins Solved With Arrest

A half dozen car break-ins have been solved, and police are checking to see if their suspect is responsible for others.

David Ruffin was arrested Monday by Greenville police for breaking into several vehicles in the Ashcroft subdivision last month. He is also charged with using a credit card taken from one of the vehicles.

The 19-year-old is charged with six felony counts of breaking & entering into a motor vehicle, felony obtaining money by false pretenses and misdemeanor larceny.

Ruffin is in jail on a $60,000 secured bond.

    I would imagine these folks with garages are paying their own mortgage or rent. So why do they have to answer to the likes of you all about what they put in their garages? Focus on the real problem...the theives!!! Some folks are too busy blaming others instead of blaming the one that committed the crime. No one who owned these vehicles gave him permission to enter them nor fraudulently use a credit card that belonged to someone else. And these people have a right to park their vehicle where ever they want. The thief doesn't have a right to their property. Bottom Line! He made the choice to commit the crime now he can do the time! Get it right folks!

    to Me, I have a double garage, but I also have a riding lawn mower for a big yard and a couple of my 2 year old's riding outside riding toys. Those things are much easier to steal so I park in the driveway. Does that make it excess junk?

    Thats exactly right ME. People HAVE to have a garage on their house, not for a vehicle but for the useless crap they don't use. Learn to hang things, and sell things, then you can park your car inside where it belongs. I say start breaking these kids fingers if they want to keep breaking into places.

    It's good that they caught the person responsible for this. I just wish the City had put forth more effort into figuring out who broke into 17 cars on our street last summer. Not only did they break into 17 cars, they stole one, and came back the next night and SET ONE ON FIRE. We've heard absolutely nothing about the case since it happened.

    They use thier garages like everyone else in NC as storage for their excess junk.

    Good they finally caught someone. But the thing I still don't understand is Ashcroft has garage's why do people not park their cars inside??????
