    Did anyone think maybe these guys are homeless or can't afford to eat? So they went to prison for the least offensive crime they could think of. Prison provides food, shelter, clothes, medical, dental, shower, etc. Prison doesn't seem to be improving our society at all, it seems to be getting bigger and taking more out of the tax payers pocket.

    We had a storefront window broken out by vandels once. The cost to replace the glass... $ 900 The deductable on the insurance policy, $ 1000. So yeah, who do you think paid to have the window replaced ?? The other law-abiding customers, the middle class people that shop with us. Businesses can't just eat costs and not make a profit. When shop lifters steal, the honest customers pay the difference in higher prices. Wise up people.

    Gee, for 12 packs of cigarettes all they would of had to do is catch the cashiers out and about and flirt with them. They could of gotten more than that without breaking a window maybe some beer.

    It is so messed up what those older two guys done. I mean forty something years old a person should be more wise that they are now. Why Break out windows and take something that does not belong to you. Man those two guys know than that. Shoot they should be telling me not to do that kind of stuff. Go find a job working at a fast food joint and then they won't have time to break windows out and steal someone else stuff.

    They stole cigs AND damaged property. B&E is a serious crime...but I guess, living in Goldsboro, you're use to these kind of crimes happening daily. It's only a major crime in Goldsboro if someone is murdered,...right Carl?

    Not that youth would be an excuse, but these guys are in their forties! (I wonder if they were also stealing 40's oz?) Can't fix stupid.
