Greenville Police Searching for Burglary Suspects

SAL BREAKINS PICGreenville Police are asking for the public’s help to find three men who broke into the Corner Stop Grocery not once, but twice in eight days.

The first break-in was on August 1 at around 3:30 AM. Two men broke through the glass front door and hopped over the counter to steal several rows of scratch off tickets. The men then grabbed bottles of alcoholic beverages and then ran out the door.

On August 9, the suspects came back. This time they brought another person with them. They once again stole hundreds of dollars in merchandise from the store. The store owners say they are out more than $2,000 in damages and merchandise.

Greenville Police say they are looking for three black male suspects of average height and build. They say the suspects are young, possibly between the ages of 18 and 25. Chief Investigator Justin Lovvorn believes they might even live close to the store.

“If they go to a certain place like that and break-in and feel comfortable doing it, and feel like it’s something they can get away with, then it’s not uncommon within a short period of time for that person or people to come back,” Lovvorn says.

If anyone has any information on the crime, you are asked to call the Greenville Police Department at (334)382-7461 and ask to speak to an investigator. Calls can remain anonymous.
