GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a string of burglaries and attempted burglaries in the Spring Bank Road area south of Goldsboro in which the suspect is described as a man with a pink towel on his head.
Deputies from the office responded to a number of break-ins between 2:00 and 6:30 a.m. Monday morning. According to interviews with the victims, the primary suspect is a white male, approximately 5 feet and 8 to 11 inches tall, and weighing about 150-160 pounds with a slender build and no visible face or neck tattoos, deputies said. At the time the burglaries, he was wearing a white t-shirt and had a pink beach towel wrapped over his head.
There were six reported attempts to break in made in the area. There were two successful break-ins.
One homeowner pointed to marks on a window. The burglar got his arm and shoulder inside, but by the time the homeowner had gotten his gun, he had taken off.
“We’ve never had any issues with anything, so to know that more than two or three people got broken last night in our immediate area was scary,” said neighbor Beth Gettle.
The Sheriff’s Office advises anyone with information relevant to the investigation to call their number, 919-731-1481, or the Wayne County Crimestoppers at 919-735-2255.
