    Dillinger: New Bern does plenty OK on its own when it comes to crime. Folks from New Bern have been stating otherwise for a few years, but it's obvious that they were wrong about the safety there vs. other regional locales. New Bern has a whole lotta crime for a small city.

    The suspect probably stopped off for a shooting/cheeseburger in Greenville...on his way home to Rocky mount.
