BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Deputies with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office have charged two people accused of stealing about $36,000 worth of property.

Kelly Michael Rabon and Amanda Todd Coffey were both charged with:

  • breaking and entering
  • larceny
  • possession of stolen goods
  • possession of burglary tools
  • larceny of a motor vehicle

According to officials, detectives went to their home on Browns Channel Road in Supply and found several items that belonged to a victim who reported a breaking and entering December 19, 2013.

Detectives began surveillance on the house Jan. 4. They pulled over Rabon and quickly identified a laptop that belonged to the victim in the passenger seat of the car.

According to the sheriff's office, detectives executed a search warrant of the home and found several stolen items, including art, civil war artifacts, custom fitted hunting gear, a television, electronics, an ATV, and antique firearms.

Officials believe the items were stolen from Mark Saunders, the developer for Jaguar Lair.

Detective Ryan Newman with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office says this arrest will likely lead to more down the road.

"I believe the arrest of these two people was just a small step (in the process)," said Newman. "Along with the information we were given from the main suspect, Mr. Rabon, we were able to begin and continue some other investigations that were already open."

Rabon and Coffey's three children were turned over to relatives.
