Two teen lovers charged with multiple burglaries

READ MORE:

MONKEY JUNCTION, NC (WWAY) -- The charges continue to pile up for a pair of teenagers arrested earlier this month in New Hanover County.

Jacob Arthur and his girlfriend Nicole Thoos, both 17, were arrested Dec. 10 for three stolen vehicles and a string of other recent crimes.

Investigators say a man woke up that morning at 5 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 say they 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.

Arthur is charged with three counts of first-degree burglary, one count of attempted burglary, two counts of larceny of a firearm, four counts of larceny of a motor vehicle, six counts of felony conspiracy, three counts of financial card theft 13 counts of breaking and entering motor vehicle, two counts of misdemeanor larceny and one count of property damage. He is now in the custody of the NC Department of Corrections on previous charges.

Thoos is charged with one counts of first-degree burglary, one count common law robbery, one count larceny of a firearm, three counts larceny of a motor vehicle, seven counts felony conspiracy, one count breaking and entering motor vehicle. She is in the New Hanover County Jail under $88,000 secure bond.

scumbags

really? does she look like a "cheerleader" to u ? lmfao. but I see ur point here. but actually her mother is just as big of a piece of crap. this girl aka cookie ain't nothing but crap. she ain't going no where. she likes to brag about how she started drugs in kindergarten supposedly lol. she tells so many stories its hard to know which ones to believe. she's about as fake as they come. either way she thrives on negative attention. can't wait to hear her brag about being in jail. this is probably a dream come true to her. she thinks she's the best thing to walk on earth LMAO. its pathetic actually. I feel bad for the disgusting train wreckage. Poor excuse of a female.

Ahhhh, let me guess. They

Ahhhh, let me guess. They came from a good home and they are very good kids. She's a cheerleader and he's a football player. Both of them are in the National Honor Society. They are planning to go to Duke University. They are planning to be doctors. Hope a black policeman didn't arrest them. White people will scream police brutality.

little thugs

I guess y'all found out you weren't so "Big and Bad" huh? Some of us who have lived here for a very long time; are so sick of you little thugs ruining this city! Get a damn job and quit whining and taking
everybody else's possessions. Self entitled little brats!!

Get a job

It is obvious you are not up with current events. Your government paid companies to move most of the manufacturing jobs to india, Mexico, and China. That is the reason unemployment is so high in the US.

Hal Stevens

Jacob and Nichole, please go to Hal Steven's house for your next robbery and death threat. He feels it's fine to take from others, due to the fact that 'MY' government has made it harder for you two to get a job! Hey, maybe he'll put you up in his home while you're both out on probation. Sounds like a plan!!

trash

trash

Now their parents...

won't have to worry about where they are on Christmas Eve.

I wish them "teen lovers"

I wish them "teen lovers" had bursted into my house and try to burgle me cause they would have ended up like romeo and juliet at the end of the play, by which i mean "dead as a wedge" lol :DDD
