Unemployment And Crime

And now, law enforcement says the lack of jobs and the extreme heat could be contributing to the rise in crime in the area. Chief Lee Moore with the Pitt County Sheriff's Department says he's seen a rise in larceny and robberies lately. He claims many people who are unemployed and commit these crimes tend to get desperate and make poor decisions to get some easy cash. He says the heat also plays a role in the rise in crime.
