Many people returning home from Christmas vacation this week got a very unwelcome surprise...their home was broken into.
ECU student Samantha Terrell found her apartment had been ransacked. The thieves stole diamond earrings, a flat screen tv, cash, and a phone. They had gotten in through a window. She isn't the only one dealing with this scenario.
According to Greenville Police from January 1st to January 5th there were 27 reports of a home break-in in the Greenville area. We checked online reports and found that since Christmas there have been a total of 45 reports of break-ins.
Police do have leads and suspects. They believe several people and groups may have committed the crimes.
