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.
