They’ve avoided arrest, making themselves some of Eastern North Carolina’s “Most Wanted.”

For the next month, “9 on your side” is shining a spotlight on these criminals.

Each day this week and later on in November we’ll be featuring criminals from counties and cities across the East.

This Friday we’ll open the “9 on your side” phone bank and take your tips to bring Eastern North Carolina’s “Most Wanted” to justice.

Here are Pitt County’s Most Wanted:
