One man discovered attempting to rob a vehicle in the middle of the day right behind the Goldsboro City Hall probably wasn't a good idea. He was arrested on the spot.

Goldsboro police arrested 22-year-old Eric Turner at the scene after the victim says he returned to his car to see the breaking and entering in progress.

Another suspect managed to take off and get away. Bond for Turner was set at $2,500.

    Poor guy. Maybe he was cold. He certainly looks hungry. Take your valuables OUT of your car. At the least put them in the trunk. Most thieves break into cars when they see change or some type of valuables in a car. Sometimes they are just cold and looking a place to get out of the weather and maybe sleep. Maybe? This is a bad economy...could be you. Think about it.

      Bad economy....could be me???? I ain't no thief even when I'm down. Make all the excuses you want for these lowlifes but they ain't worth occupying space except in a jail cell. Better yet a chain gang.....oh I forgot that's too cruel of a punishment these days.

        Yeah, it wasn't cold at all... This guy just chose to victimize someone else. Hope he goes to prison to think about it.

    I wish we'd go back to chopping off hands for a thief. My car was just broken into last night and my cell phone and sunglasses stolen.....worthless thieves.
