Two teen lovers charged with multiple burglaries
MONKEY JUNCTION, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two teenagers for multiple burglaries.
Jacob Arthur and his girlfriend Nicole Thoos, both 17, were arrested December 10 for three stolen vehicles and a string of other recent crimes.
Investigators say a man woke up that morning at 5:00 a.m. and found someone in his bedroom at his home on Beamon Lane near Monkey Junction.
The victim stated the suspect told him, “Don’t move, or I’ll kill you.” When the victim realized the suspect did not have a gun, he fought with the teen.
The suspect got away, but the victim had ripped off enough of the suspect’s clothes that he was easily identifiable.
Deputies found Arthur a couple of streets away, Deputies also located the vehicle Arthur was driving which was stolen over the weekend. A search of the car turned up multiple stolen items and the evidence was enough to link Thoos to the crimes.
Since their arrest, Detectives have also connected Arthur and Thoos to other B&E’s in the area.
