    Why arent they posting pictures of the robber like the did with the robbery of the Long John Silvers? He has a camera in his store. And it was only a matter of time before he got robbed, he should hire a partner to work with because he's always solo and I'm sure the robber knew this!

    I dont shop in Greenville anymore because I dont feel safe there, My child wanted to go to ECU, But they are going to Wake Forest instead, the police in Greenville are part of the problem, they dont even look for the thugs, cause they are too busy writing parking tickets for students.

      NICE! Wake Forest will give your child a much better education than ECU ever would.

    Where is Kandie Smith? She started this whole mess by acting like a thug, getting arrested, and getting off with pay. Her actions led her constituents to think they could rob and shoot at will, with no consequences. Great job Kandie! You must be proud!

      White male, shirt and tie, and held the victim up with his degree.

      Gee, I'm wondering the same thing. I'm going out on a limb here, but I think it was an African American male. I know, hard to believe right?
