GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) —  A man has been arrested in a residential break-in that prompted an ECU Alert earlier this week.

Jonathan Harvey Jr. was arrested by the Greenville Police Department’s East Zone neighborhood officers just after 3 a.m. Thursday.

Police said Harvey was wanted in a break-in that happened on the 1200 block of North Overlook Drive near the intersection of Elm and 14th streets Tuesday night.

A burglary was in process when the homeowner returned around 7:30 p.m. and confronted the suspect, who ran toward the intersection of Elm and 10th streets, Greenville police said.

ECU gave an all-clear around 8:30 p.m.

No weapon was displayed.

At the time, it was inaccurately referred to as an armed robbery in an ECU Alert.

Greenville police said the arrest was the result of multiple witnesses who came forward, the persistence of the residents who were victimized and long hours put in by neighborhood officers.

Harvey was placed under a $10,000 secured bond.
