Sheriff Asks Residents To Be On The Lookout

Officials in Pitt County are asking residents to be on the lookout after a recent string of break-ins.

In a press conference Saturday afternoon Sheriff Neil Elks said there have been six reported safe break-ins since Christmas in Pitt County. He said they need the community's help to try and find the suspect or suspects.

Elks said the suspects are choosing homes that are far back from roads and they are getting in through back doors and windows.

He said, “It's like they know where they're going and they know how long they're going to be gone. They're very similar in nature. The suspects are very clean. They take the time to put the crime scene back the way it was before they came. They close the windows and patch things up."

The latest incident was discovered at a home in the 5900 block of Reedy Branch Road.

If you have any information on these break-ins contact the Pitt County Sheriff’s department or Pitt-Greenville Crime stoppers.
