A man accused of conspiring with his girlfriend to rob the gas station where she worked has been arrested.

John Austin Jarrett, 24, was booked in the New Hanover County Detention Center early Wednesday morning and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was booked under a $100,000 bond.

Hubble was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon after she was interviewed by detectives.
