POLICE: 56 Home Break-Ins Solved With Single Arrest

Greenville police say they have solved more than 50 home break-ins with the arrest of a Winterville man.

Willie James Lloyd was originally arrested August 5th for failing to appear in court for previous burglary charges. Police say further investigation led them to charge Lloyd with 56 residential burglaries during June, July and August. On White Hollow Drive, six different homes were burglarized.

The 26-year-old Lloyd is in jail on a $100,000 bond and police say more charges against him are possible.

The North Carolina Department of Corrections lists a 26-year-old Willie James Lloyd with a criminal history in Pitt County dating back to 2001.

Convictions include breaking and entering, resisting an officer, drugs and carrying a concealed weapon.

One of the victims we spoke with Thursday says he came home last week, to find his bedroom ransacked and his backdoor pried open with a crowbar.

The 26-year-old Willie Lloyd listed on the website had five infractions when he served several months in prison, including gang involvement, fighting and disobeying orders.
