POLICE: Men Caught Red-Handed At Greenville Business

Police say they caught two men red-handed as they were trying to carry away heavy equipment from a Greenville business this morning.

Jerry Daniels and Vincent Williams, both of Greenville, are charged with felony larceny after breaking and entering, misdemeanor breaking and entering and misdemeanor larceny.

A patrol officer spotted the two men at Electric Motor Sales & Service on West 14th Street. The officer detained the men and recovered a steel motor dolly that's used to lift and transport large electric motors. Police also found a chain link fence that had been cut at the business.

Detectives say they are working to connect Daniels and Williams to other unsolved break-ins in Greenville.

    Police should have held back and followed them to the scrap yard, then arrested them AND the scrap metal dealer for receiving stolen goods. When is this going to stop. When the scrap metal dealers start facing fines and jail time for buying stolen goods!! lock em up

      I agree, some metal dealers and pawn shops know good and well that these cracksheads will steal anything for that next hit.

    Great Worl GPD Officer.Yiu were at the right place at the right time. Glad you caught these 2 scumbags. Here they were out at 3AM under the cover of darkness trying to steal from a small business that is probably struggling in this economy. Put these sorry thugs in jail for a long time.

          It's already added up and the statistics do show approximately 80% of our prison's population is black.....sorry but that's a fact.
