Greenville Man Charged In "Hole-In-The-Wall" Break-In

Police say they have arrested a man for a "hole-in-the-wall" break-in they believe is not connected to others that occurred last year.

Greenville police say Steven Mills was charged Thursday with last week's break-in at Tie Breakers Bar and Grill on Smythewyck Drive.

Police say around 6:30 a.m. on July 20th they responded to an alarm call at the business. They found a hole was made in the drywall of an unlocked storage room that led to the actual business.

But police say the would-be burglar was only able to get into the outer drywall layer because there was a metal panel behind it.

Mills was charged with breaking and entering and injury to real property.

Last year there was a rash of "hole-in-the-wall" break-ins, but police do not believe Mills is connected to those crimes.
