TABOR CITY, NC (WMBF) Tabor City Police have arrested two people from Loris and expect to arrest more in connection to an armed robbery at an ATM Thursday.

Lt. Jerry Sarvis, spokesman for the Tabor City Police Department, said a male victim went to retrieve money from an ATM when he realized her forgot his vehicle.

Upon arriving back to his vehicle, another vehicle pulled up and a suspect got into the victim's car and demanded money while pointing a gun at him.

Sarvis said the victim gave the suspect over $300 in cash as well as 200 Percocets. Upon further investigation, officers identified Teresa and Rico Jackson of Loris as suspects along with three others, including Tyrone Jackson.

Teresa and Rico Jackson both confessed to the crime, according to Sarvis. They were arrested and have been charged with aiding and abetting in the robbery. A warrant has been issued for Tyrone Jackson.

Teresa and Rico Jackson were taken to the Coumbus County Jail.
