Greenville Man Charged With Robbing Grandfather At Gunpoint

A Pitt County man is accused of robbing his elderly grandfather at gunpoint at his home in Lenoir County.

James Barrow, Jr. of Greenville is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and jailed on a $150,000 bond.

Lenoir County deputies say the robbery happened last Wednesday in Circle Drive in La Grange. They say the 36-year-old Barrow, along with two other people, drove to his grandfather's home where Barrow is accused of threatening and robbing the man. The grandfather was not injured and deputies say $600 and a cell phone were taken.

Barrow was arrested on Monday in Greenville, while deputies are still searching for the man and woman who helped him in the holdup.

    I have been knowing James a long time and the only thing that is going to "help" him is a long prison sentence.

    James robbed me as well. I asked him for a ride and when we got to the gas station I got out and took out my wallet to give him money for gas and he grabbed it and jumped back in the truck and left me at the gas station. He deserves what he gets.

        This would be an opinion. Different Mods have different views...I've seen varying amounts of 'inappropriate comments' on different days. There is no definite standard. It's all a matter of who's working that day/night....Am I correct?

    Grandparents should be protected above almost anything else. This low life needs to be hung in public after spending a couple days in the stocks.

    Where are you now? The black man robbing BOJANGLE'S got bond of $50,000.00 yet this WHITE man has a bond set at $150,00.00. Where is everyone that was raising a stink about black folk getting high bonds for the same crimes?? Seems to me ya'll have nothing to say now.... This goes to show that bonds are set based on CRIMINAL HISTORY, FLIGHT RISK, ETC. With that being said, all you out there complaining about discrimination... GIVE IT A REST!
