Police Investigate Simultaneous Break-Ins Next Door To Each Other

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two people who broke into two businesses in Greenville at the same time.

Around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, officers responded to an alarm at Firehouse Subs on West Arlington Boulevard and found the front door shattered. At the same time they found the glass missing from Tropical Smoothie Cafe, which is next door.

Surveillance video showed two people using large stones broke the glass and went into the businesses at the same time. Nothing was taken in either break-in, as police say cash registered were targeted, but neither business had money in their drawer.

Police say the two were in and out of the businesses in less than 30 seconds.

Both were wearing hooded sweatshirts to conceal their faces.

Anyone with information on the break-ins should call Greenville police at 252-329-4139 or Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.
