Greenville police say they have solved a long string of armed robberies which have plagued the city since last May.

Today they announced the arrest of Rashad White of Glendale Court on 18 counts of armed robbery.

Police say since May White has been on a crime spree. One of those businesses, the Wilco Hess on South Memorial Drive was held up four different times.

In addition to the 17 armed robberies since May, police say White is also charged with the October 2004 holdup of the Hamilton Inn.

    Wow. This guy is seriously worthless, as Blame him has already pointed out. Kudos to the GDP. We need to maintain efforts to keep scum of this kind from affecting our fine city and from endangering our residents and their businesses. May he rot in prison.

    By the time this thug goes to court he will have found God, servrd as an alter boy, and goes to church every Sunday. It's amazing how many God fearing folks prison produces.

    The punishment concept that the movie "Escape from New York" was based on is starting to look pretty good to me...

    He looks like a guy who has alot going for him. How hard do you think he tried on getting a job, or doing something positive for himself. Yes I do judge, based on what he has done. No forgiveness here. It's not like he did it one time, and realized he had done something wrong, he just kept right on and on. Worthless he is.

    The problem with this is that even if convicted he will only be put in jail given health care, dental care sent to school if desired, given a chance to do some weight training, 3 meals a day, cable tv etc. We the US citizens that work for a living will still have to thke care of him. Where is the punishment in this!

    Who locked this this fool up is not important, the most important thing is he's no longer a threat to society. I'm sure Greenville Police Dept. tried hard to catch this hard working criminal. There are more criminals out there than LEO, so praise these officers for their hard work. It's called LEO team work.

    this is the type of person i society is becoming. i guarantee you he has no education, no family, no morals, and no future. if he gets the max he will still be even more of an animal when he gets out. he is one of hundreds of these people-- just think what the future will be unless we start getting serious about getting these thugs off the street early in thier lives and leave them there forever.
