Starting at 3:15 a.m. at the Pizza Hut on 4125 Old Tar Road in Winterville, and continuing until 4:46 a.m. at Anita's Mexican Restaurant at 1915 N. Memorial Drive in Greenville, two males suspects entered the eatery by breaking a window, GPD spokesperson Kristen Hunter said. In each instance, including break-ins at Sam Jones BBQ and Warren's Hot Dogs, the suspects left empty-handed when it came to cash.

Instead, Hunter said, smaller items, such as bags of chips, and beverages, were taken. Due to the timing of the break-ins and based on surveillance video, investigators believe the same suspects are involved in the break-ins at each of the four restaurants.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call the Greenville Police Department (252) 329-4315, the Winterville Police Department (252) 756-1105, or Crime Stoppers (252) 758-7777. Crime Stoppers offers up to a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
