Greenville police have arrested one man who they said has confessed to throwing a set of post hole diggers through the Front Street Pub on Saturday, Dec. 12 in a failed robbery attempt.

Police were able to identify Will Earl Jenkins, 45, as the suspect because of surveillance cameras located outside the business said Lt. Anthony Barganier, police spokesperson.

Jenkins was charged with burglary, 3rd degree, and two unrelated counts of failure to appear in court for driving with a revoked and suspended license, said Barganier.
