    I have been a Winterville resident for 8½ years. These home burglaries are the first that I have heard of in these specific areas. These neighborhoods are close knit and aware of their neighborhood foot and vehicle traffic. Many of the residents are involved in local law enforcement. We have faith in Chief Wilkes and the Winterville Police Department (WPD) that the guilty will be apprehended. In the meantime, it is important that residents use their flood lights to brighten their exteriors and keep dead bolts locked. I do not believe outdoor lighting was being used as a deterent in these two instances. Street lights are not sufficient and should not be relied upon for security. Please visit the WPD web site for valuable safety information. Don't be a victim!

    It was only a matter of time for that crime spread to our town. Great, hope the Winterville PD can deal with it all.

    Why don't they just combine Greenville and Winterville and call it Wintergreen? I think it's a good idea since they are both so crime ridden.
