    You can most likely blame the city police dept fot the late reporting. Happened on Sunday AM & Police are just telling reporters? Reason is because of the long holiday.All the bo=ig shots at Police Dept were off several Days.

      That is an excellent idea, BUT the county commissioners will want their cut so you will need to pay them for a franchise.

      If WITN doesn't give a description, then you should already know...

    There are two Kangaroo stations on that corner. The larger one has video cameras outside. Has any video footage been released? I don't understand how these super rich gas station owners can't invest in affordable modern technology so we can get a good look at the suspects, the vehicle they drove up in, etc.

      And install the bullet proof cage around the teller like in larger cities. I will never understand why these convenience stores in Greenville don't have this stuff. You have these people in there working for barely minimum wage trying to make a living and it seems like every week one of them has a gun in their face. The one on 14th and Gvl. Blvd. has been held up many times in the last year. It would be nice to see the owners put forth a little effort to keep their employees safe.
