The two other suspects, Elliott Watkins, 28, and Jebb Kidd, 31, are wanted on similar charges and remain at large, according to a sheriff’s office spokeswoman.

They should be considered armed and dangerous.

On Oct. 2, deputies were responding to a call at a residence on Cypress Avenue in Bolton at approximately 12:30 a.m. when the victim, who lives at another residence on the road, approached them to report a robbery.

The victim said a woman had knocked on his door. While he was speaking with her, two men allegedly forced their way into the home while armed with a handgun.

According to the incident report, $600 in cash, a wallet and two firearms were taken.

The victim was struck in the head with a firearm during the home invasion.

If you have any information on their whereabouts, contact the sheriff’s office at 910-640-6629 or call 911.
