Greenville police have arrested a man after they say he broke into a home on Eric Court this morning.

It happened around 10:45 a.m., not far from one of several armed robberies which occurred overnight. At this time, police are not sure whether 25-year-old John Nemr is connected with the string of holdups.

Greenville police tell WITN News that a neighbor confronted the man with a shotgun, and the suspect ran into the woods. Police K-9 units were brought in to track the suspect.

Another police officer spotted a man fitting the description getting on a city transit bus a few minutes later at 14th Street & Elm. The officer stopped the bus and got the suspect safely off the bus.

Police now say the Nemr had four guns and a bag a marijuana on him when he was arrested. He so far has been charged with breaking and entering and possession of stolen property.
