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.

    People are so quick to judge. I actually grew up with Willy and I know him very well and he has had a troubled life. Things went downhill for him when he was a teenager his oldest a closest brother was shot and left paralyzed... he is not on drugs but he does have some mental issues. The 1st time he was locked up for B&E it was an offense against a relative of mines that he was dating at the time. After that he did TRY to do right but like all criminals there is no second chance he couldn't even get a job at McDonald's. Like most of the boys in the hood the only thing left is becoming a dope boy and turning to other means of making money. He is not a thug he didn't start trouble he was just trying to survive. If you've seen him you would know he's only about 160 lbs very skinny and tall he couldn't do it by himself. He is loving,caring,silly, but troubled Im sad for him he needs guidance and psychiatric help not a life sentence in prison.

    I was one of the persons that was broken in to at White Hollow Dr, there is no way he did this by him self !!!!!!!! I know for a fact that a very large tv was stolen and no way he carried it by himself ! He also had to be casing the place because he knew me and the guy next door were both gone and that my very large dog was not at home that night. So I want to know when am I going to get my stuff back ........

    I have expressed my contention that the prisons are too easy and I will continue to do so. There is really no "punishment" in prison. Some of these felons actually have it easier inside than outside. The big rocks need to be broken into little rocks and the entire compound should be an area of intense labor. If the environment is tough enough it would not be an encouragement to go "in". They might be willing to do anything to "stay out". That is how it should be - miserable.

    At First I wasn't going to comment on this story because it is said that this guy has committed this type of crime before and had the audacity to steal from hard working individuals again. With that being said I am also a 26 year old black male and I work with the doc at a prison facility and what I general see is the justice system placing criminals in prison and not helping them readjust when they get out to become productive and if this continues to happen then all that will happen will be this revolving door that plagues our society each and everyday. Rest assured if we would stop blaming others and started helping then these issues would not continue to escalate to this level. By the way our opinons represent who we are and many of you need to look deep with in yourselves because we all are Americans if we would listen to understand instead of quick to pass judgement the world would be a better place. Don't justify this as a color issue but as a society issue. No one is perfect

    Bobcat, either someone is impersonating Tad or he is trying to cause a stir because I assure you the real Tad wouldn't make excuses for this person or support President Obama.
