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.

    The city should be responsible to put some stores in that area where people can walk down the street and buy bread and milk. I bet that judge has a car and has never had to walk to the store. It's a big laugh when poor people are pushed around. What about the inicent people who need a good store. I guest they will have to wait until next month.
