Home Invasion Suspects Caught

Some quick-acting neighbors have helped Greenville Police catch suspects in a break-in within a quarter mile of the crime scene.

Greenville Police say three people are in custody after they broke into a home at the Brighton Park Apartment complex late Wednesday night.

Police arrested 19-year-old Steven Louis Davis of Ayden, 20-year-old George Williams-Wylie of Greenville and 21-year-old Malcolm Eli Daniels of Greenville. They're charged with first degree burglary and attempted armed robbery.

Police say neighbors who spotted the intruders called police with descriptions of their clothing and car. The suspects will make their first court appearance in Pitt County Court Thursday morning.

    I cannot speak too much about this altercation because I am very close to this situation. I would just like to say please do not judge a book by it's cover, and God is the only one whom is able to judge. People need to keep an eye on the story and watch it unfold until they make comments or place judge or blame on these guys. I am in no way saying that the accusations that these men are being charged with is okay, however why isn't everyone looked at as innocent until being PROVEN guilty.

    Glad they were caught.... We need to have stiffer punishment for thieves. In some countries, these three individuals would be flogged or even worse, have their hands cut off. Maybe that's not such a bad idea?

    Could these be the three guys that jumped out of the woods and robbed the two people at the corner of Arlington and Turtle Creek at 5:30 am a couple of weeks ago or the theives that broke into vehicles at Forbes Woods and Breezewood the night before?

    Yep. They will get popped on the hand, tell them not to ever do it again and then that will be the end of it.

    Good job neighbors--Even though the police are good detectives they rely heavily on the public to be vigilant and observant. Most crimes would never be solved without tips from citizens. Good job neighbors and police and let this be an example of when something dosen look right outside your window it probably isn't-- We have to protect our friends and neighbors because the cops can't watch everything all the time!! Don't hesitate to call the guys in blue!!!

    I think I heard all this on the scanner last night.

    What in the world is going on in '09. All I've been hearing about is break-ins. I know one of the guys personally and I can't believe he would be invovled with anything of this nature. But, you can't put anything past anyone these days. I hope GPD continue to catch these thieves. It's more out there.

    Too bad the court will most likely allow a plea bargain down to a misdemeanor, with a small fine, short probation, and no jail time.
