BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A man Brunswick County deputies have been searching for for weeks has been caught in Wrightsville Beach.

Officers arrested Kenneth Ross Jessup around 7 p.m. Wednesday after getting an anonymous tip on where he was. The tip came after the Sheriff’s Office asked area media to rebroadcast information about Jessup that was first reported last month.

Jessup faces dozens of criminal counts, including forgery and writing worthless checks. He is in the Brunswick County Detention Center under a $180,000 secured bond.
