Man, woman arrested for Brunswick County robbery


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A man and a woman are in jail charged in connection to a robbery that occurred yesterday at a home on Moss Court in Leland.

Deputies arrested Steven Isaha Evans, 21, of Wilmington, and Courtney Briona Jacobs, 20, of Leland early this morning.

According to warrants, Evans and Jacobs threatened the victim with a shotgun as they stole a PlayStation 3, video games and coins. They are each in jail under $100,000 bond charged with second degree kidnapping, felony breaking and entering, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Investigators say Evans is a validated gang member. The Department of Corrections website shows his criminal record includes convictions for robbery, kidnapping and resisting an officer.
