After nearly a decade of adventure, PeeDee the Pirate once again will man the second-floor balcony of Evans Properties in Greenville.

According to company owner Steve Evans, he bought the 6-foot-tall fiberglass pirate statue from a local vendor in the early 2000s and placed it in his store at 1128 Evans St. After about a year, it was stolen on June 9, 2002. Evans reported the theft to the Greenville Police Department, but the statue never was located.


Until 2011.
