WEB FIRST: Injunction Granted In Convenience Store Case

A Pitt County judge says a closed Greenville convenience store will remain padlocked for the time being.

Assistant city attorney Bill Little tells WITN News that the judge has granted the city's temporary injunction. Little says that means the Pitt Stop 1 will remain closed until there's a final judgment made at trial.

Greenville Police shut down four convenience stores in August and charged the owners with several crimes including wire fraud and money laundering.

Little says because of new order, the city will no longer have to get a temporary restraining renewed to keep the Pitt Stop 1shut down.
