WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) – Officers with the Whiteville Police Department are searching for a man accused of breaking into Sam's Pitt Stop off Jefferson Street earlier this week.
According to police, a man with a key was caught on camera unlocking a door and walking into the convenience store.
Officers said the alarm system started to go off when the man got inside. The video shows the man getting ready to leave, but then decides to stay. The attempted burglar ran away moments later, however, when the alarm system got louder.
Police said it doesn't look like the man stole anything, but they still plan to charge him with breaking and entering.
