Four Teens Charged In Two Greenville Armed Robberies

Police say they found three guns, including a sawed-off shotgun when they arrested four teenagers on armed robbery charges.

Rasheen Williams of Englehard, along with Stephon Smith, Johnnie Settle, and Ademiloju Adeleye, all of Raleigh, are charged with two counts of armed robbery and one count of possession of a weapon of mass destruction.

Greenville police say the robberies happened early Wednesday morning on Farmville Boulevard and on Arlington Boulevard. Officers say they were able to stop a suspected vehicle thanks to information from one of the victims.

Police say inside the vehicle they found two .22 caliber rifles and a 12 gauge sawed-off shotgun.

All four teens were jailed on $100,000 bonds. Police say they are working with other area law enforcement agencies to see if the four are responsible for other crimes as well.

    I have to speak on this because people are constantly speaking on things they hardly know anything about.I am the girlfriend of one these guys who got arrested for this,& i have met his mother.As far as Im concerned all these "assumptions" or whatever you want to call yourself making are WRONG.His mother is a hardworking no-nonsense type of woman & she kept her household in order.So don't judge her if you don't know anything about her b/c I can honestly say that she has done the best she could do but she cant follow his every step!Now on another note,you cant criticize them just from what you hear over the Media,because the Media isn't always right & they don't tell everything.I'm not saying what they did was right but you can't denounce their parents for what they did. You don't know why they did it or how they were raised so stop spitting on people and their children if you don't know them. Truth be told,you didnt grow up perfect, so dont expect that of anyone else.

    This whole situation leaves a bad taste in the mouth of alot of people however:I happen to know one of the parent's and I can honestly say that she is one of the most dedicated and hard working mothers I have ever known. Her son tho charged in this case is not a bad kid, he made a bad decision and though many of you want to pass judgement and compare what has happened to the dying of hair, etc. Let's be real, they are kids, and even the BEST parent's cant be there 24/7 and even the most responsible child can find his/herself in a situation that could so easily ruin the rest of thier lifes. Don't get me wrong, this situation could have been worse and I don't condone the behavior of the 4 boys, I will say: You cant judge a book by its cover, & cant always blame the parent. Children of today live in a world that don't offer 2nd chances and when they do, they are limited.Society screams lock them up. Jail doesn't rehabilitate it just makes it harder to start over. Stop passing the blame.

    It amazes me how people are so quick to judge, immediately its the parents fault when a child goes wrong or make a made decision. People want to believe the parents are not responsible, not teaching or guiding their children but I am here to say, I know one of the parent she works for the government retired from the armed services after doing 20 years worked since the age of 14 yrs was married and divorced raised her child to know the difference between right and wrong unfortunately children do not always follow what they are taught, so people its not always the parents fault some of us are responsible people.

    A bad decision is dying your hair pink. Pulling a gun on someone could be a life or death decision. Ask the guy that just tried to rob the off duty deputy. Poor parenting sure some of the problem. Mostly wanting more that they are willing to work for. Why work all day and make fifty bucks when we can go out rob some one and make the same money.

    What's stranger than that is when you mix in Hyde County and Wake County together. Take these boys off to the middle east and use weapons on the enemies over there. That's the only way they will straighten their act I'll guarantee.

    OBviously these children come from deprived families who have learned to live the way politicians have taught and forced our youth to live. Fight and Qounqer, isnt that the motto...then you throw in poverty and it becomes survival...the issues are much deeper then just wreckless behavior...
  • by are you kidding? Location: Greenville on Jan 24, 2010 at 08:56 PM
    Let's see the solution is - don't send people to jail for crime, don't judge criminals, don't work for corporations in order to make a living, don't have opinions or voices. ARE YOU KIDDING? Wake up people before you destroy our community and this country, if you haven't already.....

    what do YOU do? im curious to know your take on action regarding taking back the streets of our towns. im not being sarcastic, i think there should be an outpouring in every community afflicted with gangs to try and remedy the situation. so what is the plan?

    And for those that find this situation to be a way of "cleaning the streets" please be reminded that for every inmate they take in there is another one getting out so the old saying of out of site out of mind doesn't apply here. Just because you don't want to deal with these issues "Truth" doesn't mean that there are others out here that don't mind. If this was your family member or friend you would support that person and in the corporate world (you know the one you need a degree for) people get robbed everyday without a gun and nobody cares and they take way more money from us than half the "thugs" on the street. Im sooooooooooooo tired of people with opinions that take no action. What would jesus do? Would he judge or would he act?
