— Greenville police are searching for a man they considered armed and dangerous and believe was involved in 30 shootings, robberies and other crimes.

Detectives took out a warrant against Michael Twann Harris, 24, of 920 E. Allen Road in Greenville, for an armed robbery that took place outside 611 Pamlico Ave. on Nov. 2. Investigators believe Harris did not act alone but have not identified any other suspects.

Harris had been released from jail on a $45,000 secured bond after being arrested on Sept. 28. Police have filed charges against him for at least 30 shooting incidents, burglaries and car break-ins.

Before his earlier arrest, Harris evaded police for several weeks. Officers consider him a flight risk and warned that he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Harris' whereabouts is asked to contact the Greenville Police Department at 252-329-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to convictions, and callers do not have to identify themselves.
