BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A day after asking for help finding a teen in connection with several break-ins, Brunswick County Sheriff’s deputies say the teen is in custody.

Investigators arrested Jacob Tyler Cortes, 17, this morning. He was wanted for two counts of felony breaking and entering motor vehicle, two counts misdemeanor larceny and one count felony breaking and entering.

    Where’d this nutjob live? There have been so many breakins in the last 2 weeks in the Holden Beach mainland side it would take a tractor trailer truck to move the stuff, Ingram should be working 75 to 80% of his staff from 10pm till 6am every night and the citizens will keep an eye out during the day for these thieves, they can watch over us while we sleep, we’ll watch over them while they sleep.

    So, almost all of the deputies on duty at night should be patrolling one section and to heck with the rest of the county?

    No, I want them patrolling the entire county at night, there were 3 more known breakins and thefts and vandalizing done 5/10 still in that same less than 1 mile radius, there has to be a way to get this stuff under control, that is a lot of property being fenced and transported. this thief is hitting the same area a couple times a week.

    I would think you are smarter than that aren’t you? Brunswick County employs more than 2 deputy’s, that is why you work 80% at night to cover the whole county, and let the citizens watch during the day. This would go a long way to get crime under control.

  • Guest2020 says:

    I read your meaning as wanting that percentage to be patrolling the Holden Beach mainland.

    Except of course for 80% of the citizens who aren’t at home during the day because they’re at work.
