Brunswick Co. couple charged with robbing developer


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Brunswick County couple is charged with allegedly stealing $36,000 worth of items from the home of a real estate developer, including historical artifacts and an ATV.

The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office says it got a call from a concerned citizen Friday about possible stolen property at a home on Browns Channel Road SW in Supply. Detectives went to the home where Kelly Michael Rabon and Amanda Todd Coffey live with their two kids. Deputies saw several items reported stolen Dec. 19 from the home of developer Mark Saunders.

Saturday, detectives say they stopped Rabon as he was driving away from the home and saw a laptop that belonged to Saunders in Rabon's pick-up. They executed a search warrant that night at the home and recovered art, Civil War artifacts, hunting equipment, electronics, an ATV and firearms.

Rabon and Coffey are charged with breaking and entering, larceny, possession of stolen goods, possession of burglary tools and larceny of a motor vehicle. A relative is taking care of their kids.
