Armed Robbery At Greenville Gas Station

The clerk of a gas station getting ready to open up for the day was robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday.

Chief James Tripp with the Pitt County Sheriff's Office says the robbery happened at the Trade Mart at the corner of Allen Rd. and Dickinson Ave. in Greenville.

Tripp says the woman was on her way into the gas station to open it up for the day at 4:50 a.m. when the gunman ran up to her. He was wearing a Halloween mask and had a silver handgun.

Chief Tripp says the suspect did not talk during the robbery as he ordered her to open the cash register and giving him all the money.

They hope surveillance video at the scene may offer more clues in the case.

The gunman fled the scene with cash from the store on foot, Tripp said. The clerk was not hurt.

    well just another robbery not a crime as the chief sees it. If more were arrested and found guilty sent jail and taken off the street, crime should become less. Dickerson zve area is crime waiting for a victom. Simply repaving the street and cleaning up the sidewalks might help.

    Mike, when Dave said OH, he wasn't referring to the abbreviation for Ohio. It was simply just, "Oh!"...

    Hey Dave I am from Ohio and I consider myself a Northern Redneck, And so does alot of other people I know that live in Ohio.And for the ones who don't like being here . Just Leave .And far as you say a better place. All I can do is just laugh at you. As far as Trash goes. If people had guts enough to stand up and get things done like they should there would not be as much. So it is a good thing Dave you are crawling back to Ohio just where you belong.

    As one who was born in the north (rural New England), I'd much rather be called a redneck than a yankee.

    Outlaw, this wouldn't be a Southern Dump if trash wasn't allowed to accumulate here like it is. Trash = Crime

    Outlaw don't worry about me. I am going to a much better place. OH and the term YANKEE is one that we northerners like! I'd rather be a Yankee than a REDNECK!

    This is not about President Obama, to let the truth be told, this started long before his term, we are seeing the fallout of the previous resigmes failures! Secondly, there are jobs out here! if you cannot find a job in your field of experience, go to school, get educated on hot jobs that are hiring quicker, i.e. medical field, HVAC, etc.! Finally, pls. leave the politics atleast Federally out of the conversation unless you know what you are talking about!

    This is to Dave: If you are so unhappy with this so-called "Southern dump" then don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way to Yankee land. All I got is one more thing to say - get to gettin'!

    Your comment says alot about what is wrong with this country today. Instead of sitting on your behind waiting for the government to send you a check, why don't you get off of it and go to work. There are jobs out there, you just have to long longer and harder.
