Deputies Investigate Second Pitt County Home Invasion

There's been another home invasion in Pitt County, the latest happening Tuesday night around 11:00 p.m. This time one of the victims was pistol whipped.

Deputies have charged Craig Gunter and James Daniels, Jr. with robbery with a dangerous weapon. Daniels is also charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

It happened at a home on Bertha Lane. Deputies say the two men walked into the home and robbed them of cash, an Xbox and a number of video games. Daniels is accused of striking one victim in the face with his handgun. That victim was treated at PCMH for their injuries.

Both Gunter and Daniels are in the Pitt County jail.

Early Tuesday morning a Pitt County couple were not hurt when masked men burst into their home on Reggie Court. Those gunmen only got a cell phone.

    To Anonymous about the law enforcement caring. Thats a load of crap. All half these Greenville PD care about is running stop lights and giving tickets. My grandmothers house was broken into about 2 weeks ago, did they do anything? NOPE! Said there was nothing that they could do about it and just told her sorry. There are very few law enforcement officers that take their jobs seriously, most of them do it because it makes them feel better than just a regular citizan.

    I say it's time to start realjustice. If the lawmakers just pass a law to start cutting a hand off on and home invader and make it public this will stop this mess. Or better yet let "we the people" do it. I for one would to get some justice of these crazy people .

    First off, if you're not iin law-enforcement then don't down the officers! If you think you could do better then go to BLET!! No matter how much you patrol, you can't be everywhere all the time!! And yes, the officers do care about the citizens.

    You might want to read the story. It says this is the SECOND home invasion on TUESDAY....not the second home invasion in Pitt County's history. Gee wizz!

    How did this crime get the name of SECOND home invasion??? I know there have been more than two home invasions in Pitt County because I have read about them right here. Exactly why and who is trying to pull the wool here and what is the point of it? Is someone trying to make it look like crime is on the decline or just not happening???

    I don't know whether the home invasion took place in a rural setting or in a city, but the Greenville Police Department has jurisdiction solely over Greenville, not Pitt County. FYI: If you live outside of Greenville, you should be worried about Pitt County Sheriffs Office instead of Greenville Police Department when it comes to your home being invaded. This has been a public service announcement aimed to inform citizens of how to be sure of their safety.

    Any would be home invaders reading this should hope they don't pick my house. My companion Mr. 45 will welcome them in and do understand that it will be a full clip welcome party to make sure they don't leave. The question is do you feel lucky?

    I'm with you Betty, This is horrible. Everyday on WITN there is another story about a robbery. I guess if the police can't stop it we will have to put an end to it ourselves. We have stocked our homes with our personal guns and 2 Pit Bulls. Thats what everyone is going to have to do soon!

    We just need to start buying our own protection and not be afraid to use it!

    Got to stop the crime no matter what it takes. Greenville is a dangerous place to live. No one will want to move to Pitt County if the crime doesn’t stop. Like I’ve been saying all a long, GET RID OF THE CHIEF OF POLICE, that will take care of a lot of the crime that gets over looked.
