Concerned Citizen Thwarts Robbery

A concerned citizen noticed someone walking behind local businesses carrying a flat screen television.

After calling police, officers discovered that T.V. and other items were stolen from a nearby home.

Goldsboro police arrested, 21-year-old Christopher Williams for Breaking and Entering and Possession of Stolen Goods.

It happened Tuesday afternoon near South Harding Drive.

Officers say a citizen called them when they saw Williams with the TV.

Officers located two T.V.'S in the bushes where Williams was seen carrying the flat screen.

Williams is now in jail under a $17,500 secured bond.

    Once an arrest is made, it is public record. It is up to the media to report what they retrieve from the public records files. The Sheriff's Dept. nor the Goldsboro Police Dept. control what is released to the public.

      http://www.sheriffcitrus.org/public/ArRptQuery.aspx In Georgia, each county has a "legal organ" - arrests are easily found there. AND each dept produces a monthly report. http://www.atlantapd.org/pdf/uniform-crime-reports/04FB22D7-42AE-488D-941C-115D811A5CD1.pdf I could easily demonstrate department after department across our country! Departments choose whether to engage the public. Most have to understand the value of notifying and building a working relationship with the public in the digital era we now live, don't they? An informed public should be no-brainer imo. I would assert NC law enforcement agencies most assuredly have the ability to release what they believe will help promote public safety. It is not the responsibility of the media!

    To Pete. What you see is again another case of who certain people choose to highlight and throw in a token.

    One only has to go to www.kinston.com and look at the 94% arrest record in kinston/lenoir county to see where the bulk of the crime comes from and who the real criminals are.

      Does Goldsboro and Wayne County post their arrest records? I see where they have crimemapping, but I don't see where they actually publish arrest records! Why would a dept publish crime but not publish their effort to solve? The Sheriff's dept apparently handpicks some arrests to publish. WHY not publish the LOT? Whose decision was it to project this image to the community? BTW- can anyone else get the link from GOldsboro police to Crimestoppers to work? Wonder why Wayne County crimestoppers hasn't been updated since 2009?
