WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Police Department has charged a Southport woman and the suspect in Saturday's manhunt with kidnapping and robbing a man before shooting him and dumping him on Klein Road last week.
Brittany Nichole Moses, 25, was taken into custody by US Marshals in Wilmington around noon Thursday and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and first-degree kidnapping.
She was booked in the New Hanover County Jail under a $500,000 bond.
Moses and Greer Hayes Old, 22, are accused of kidnapping Joshua Miller at an unspecified location on Market Street last Thursday and transporting him to Klein Road. At some point during the drive, Miller was shot multiple times and then pushed out onto Klein Road.
Old, who is a validated gang member, was arrested Saturday night following a manhunt in the Forest Hills area. On Wednesday, Old was additionally charged with the same offenses that Moses is facing. He was also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
His bond was increased Wednesday to $650,000.
Additional charges against Old and Moses are possible and the investigation into the incidents is ongoing.
A spokeswoman with the WPD said officers are still searching for a second suspect who was involved in the Saturday manhunt. The spokeswoman said it's unclear if he was involved in the Klein Road incident.
According to 911 calls released Wednesday, a caller told dispatchers on Saturday night that he read WECT's story about the Klein Road incident and claimed he knew two of the suspects and that they were staying at the Travel Inn on Market Street.
"I only know two of them," the caller tells dispatch and when dispatch asks if he knows the name of the other individual, the caller says, "her name is Brittany."
"All four of them are white," the caller adds. "They're all young. They're all dangerous and they all have guns. They're all in the Gangster Disciples."
When Wilmington police arrived at the motel, Old and the other unidentified suspect jumped into a car and fled the scene, leading to a car chase that ended near Empie Park in the Forest Hills area. Then two men then exited the car and fled on foot.
At some point during the foot chase, shots were exchanged between an officer and the suspects, according to officials. No injuries were reported. Police say Greer is believed to be the one who fired at officers.
Greer was taken into custody about an hour later.
