Two Teen Girls Arrested in Downtown Mugging
Of course, one is actually an adult at 19 so as usual we see the local media minimizing the crime by describing people who should do a couple of years in prison as children.
In the past few years Greenville has seen an increase in homeless youths as the city becomes more hospital to the drifting masses making the “circuit” from the big northeastern cities in the summer to the deep south in the winter. Despite the PC nonsense the majority of homeless have severe drug and alcohol problems – which is why they can’t get into shelters or section 8 housing. The mugshots of the two above seem to indicate they too like the drugs and seem to either be homeless or simply trying to fit in with homeless freinds. Since police caught them sitting in a public garage rather than fleeing the area I assume they hit this lady for drug money. The downtown is lousy with dealers these days.
Two teenagers were arrested after police say they robbed a woman at knife-point in downtown Greenville.
Acacia Brooke Pitts, 19, and Morgan Jean Key, 17, were arrested.
Pitts is charged with having an unlawful weapon, giving false name to police, armed robbery and possession of a knife during a violent crime.
Key is charged with giving false information to police, armed robbery, possession of knife during a violent crime.
The victim told police that the teens, who were armed with a knife, approached her last Thursday and she gave them her purse.
The victim was able to provide a description and police said the teens were found in the stairwell of the Bowater parking garage, dressed in the clothing the victim had described.
Police say both teens confessed to the robbery.
