WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say two of the Port City's busiest criminals are back behind bars.

Police say Andrea Deshaun Baker, 28, was booked yesterday at the New Hanover County Jail on warrants for two failures to appear in court, felony breaking & entering, larceny after B&E and two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. He is out of jail after posting a $16,600 bond.

Investigators say Deismond Lamar Simpson, 27, was booked this afternoon at the New Hanover County Jail on warrants for four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He is in jail under a $100,000 bond.

Police say Baker as out of jail on bond after being accused of felony B&Es at Jungle Rapids and Chuck E. Cheese's back in May.

Detectives say Baker, who has "Thug Life" tattooed on his neck and arm, was released from prison in October 2011 after serving time for common law robbery. They say Simpson has at least 33 arrests dating back to 2001 for everything from bomb threats to larceny of dogs, horses, mules, cattle, and/or swine.

HELP HELP HELP NOT CURSE CURSE CURSE!

Understand someone before you come and say some off the wall things. Baker lost his mother and father at a young age, unlike your children if they lose there house or job they can come back home but where is he going to go. Baker does have thug life tattooed on his neck so what some people have other things on them... Anyway try to help him instead of slandering him. Guess what putting him in jail want change him but help him come home and do it again because now he has more charges. Burger King want even hire him, some want to do right but your family's want hire them. So you tell me how is he suppose to change his ways if he's not even giving a chance?

The headline is not accurate

Only one of them is back behind bars. The other posted bond and is back on the street, ready to prey on someone else.

How dare they?

How dare they arrest those two fine young men when all they were trying to do was to redistribute the wealth and to bring up their felllow man. Those companies didn't build those businesses anyway....those two young gentleman are entitled to their fair share! It's a disgrace to see those heroes put behind bars!

Well, clearly they have not

Well, clearly they have not tried to rob or assault the right person yet. If they keep it up hopefully one of their victims will have a gun of their own and will fix the problem for good.

Ridiculous!

This is totally ridiculous. These are habitual offenders and it's a waste of Police Officer's time and taxpayers money to keep letting these losers out. One day one of these guys is going to kill somebody. The court system sucks!

We elect the judges.

We elect the judges.

he should get a tattoo that

he should get a tattoo that reads "waste of life" across his forehead...

Armed Felons

So armed felons committing violent acts,that could result in loss of life are given bond,huh.Guess we need some new judges to go with the new mayor and council members we will be getting
