Former police officer convicted


A Brunswick County jury convicted a former Leland police officer today.

The jury found Brett Hobbs guilty of felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods. The case stems from an incident at a convenience store in Holden Beach.

Hobbs resigned from the Leland Police Department in 2005 after a conviction for selling drugs. A judge sentenced Hobbs today to five to six months in prison.
