Larceny at local businesses

Two incidents of breaking and entering and larceny of coin operated machines occurred this week.

On Tuesday, Goldsboro police investigated a break-in at Howell Support Services, 907 Landmark Drive, during which two safes were damaged and a vending machine was relieved of an estimated $3,000.

Then on Wednesday, suspects entered Mitchell Hairstyle Academy, 1021 N. Spence Ave., through the roof. Property damage, stolen electronics and $600 taken from a Pepsi machine were documented by police.

Dog bite

Tyrone Russell Cooper, 900 block Seaboard Street, was bitten by a dog Tuesday evening. Goldsboro police responded but were unsuccessful in capturing the dog and did not specify the animal's breed. Cooper drove himself to the Wayne Memorial Hospital Emergency Department.

Simple assault

Cousins Brianna Cook and Erica Suncin told police Wednesday that they were assaulted in Cook's home by several black females. The group of females knocked on the door of the apartment, entered and began arguing. The verbal confrontation became physical and police were contacted.


A Pikeville home was burglarized late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Joseph Lewis Trapp was in the process of moving and left items secured in his home, but according to the Wayne County Sheriff's Office report, the front door was apparently still easy to open. A gas heater, tank and tools were stolen amounting to more than $650 in losses for Trapp.
