Greenville Police Search For Robbery Suspect

Greenville Police are searching the person responsible for an early morning robbery on Friday at a gas station.

Police say one suspect broke into the Trade-Wilco Hess Station on North Memorial Dr. around 1:10 a.m by breaking the front window.

The police department has released surveillance photos to help solve the crime. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Greenville police.

This is just one of many crimes across the city in recent weeks. Greenville police say their gang suppression program has been successful so far in netting 92 arrests in three weeks. Between July 25 and 31, police put 28 criminals behind bars.

      They don't want to hear it because it makes them mad. Lord knows, we don't wanna make 'em mad! Puppies, Bunnies, Flowers, Rainbows, etc.....just be nice, all the time....this crime thing isn't important enough to offend a medium portion of the population.

    My question is 28 behind bars and 92 arrest, how did this happen all of a sudden? Appears police knew about all these folks and they are acting. Acting to impress or is somebody really doing a good job. I am thinking our Police should have already got this crowd off the street.

      getting them off the streets lasts a couple hours until they post bond. when it gets to trial a slack judge and a lazy pitt county district attorney office dismiss the charges to clear up thier court docket.

    North of the tar river is a very dangerous place.Trade/Hess just ought to shut the place down. Way too many robberies & crime over there. Companies invest in places like north of river to try to improve area & the thanks they get is the thugs rob them. Bet the guy in picture is worried? Fiorget that.He is just a lowlife thug who makes a living breaking into things while rest of world holds down a job. Put them all on road gangs working on highways in the heat. No can do that because the thugs have rights.

      Actually obamanot, you are not too bright. first of all, you know the guy in the picture DID NOT VOTE. Secondly, You are not funny. Third, is not enough black people in the ol' US of A to elect a president.

          The last time I checked, 95% of 13% STILL ISN"T ENOUGH TO ELECT A PRESIDENT...if you don't understand the math, then I'm sorry for you.

    ITS REAL EASY TO MAKE COMMENTS AND TALK BAD ABOUT THE ONES RISKING THERE LIVES EVERYDAY TO TRY TO MAKE YOUR CITY A SAFER PLACE. IF YOU THINK YOU CAN DO ANY BETTER WHY DON'T YOU STRAP UP YOUR BOOTS LIKE A BIG BOY OR GIRL GO TO BLET AND LIVE A FEW DAYS IN OUR SHOES. I BET YOUR WHOLE ATTITUDE AND LOOK ON WHAT WERE TRYING TO DO WILL CHANGE AND YOU WILL REALIZE THAT ITS EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

        Yes REM, WITN only follows their own rules when they feel like it. See rule #8 about SHOUTING. I mean, if you aren't going to follow your own rules that you post on this site, you may as well just remove it.

      It must be hard to harass college students and catching speeders on your radar geeez i wish I did that for a living. Probally 90% of the population can do a cop's job. I remember one night I was in greenville I rode downtown and probally saw 100 cops just siting around waiting for a drunk college student to mess up. Get over your self little guy and be glad you got a a bage to back your-self up.

        If GPD does not keep on top of the speeders or the drunk college kids what do you think is going to happen? your going to be up here complaining that gpd is not stopping the people speeding through your neighborhood. and you cant enforce laws that have not been broken yet so of course they where waiting for them to mess up. You and your 90% wouldnt last a week or you would be doing it your self.
