Parents See Son In Crime Surveillance Photos; 5 Now Arrested

Parents who were watching WITN Monday evening saw something no parent would want to see -- they say they saw their son robbing a convenience store.

Five teens are now under arrest for a weekend holdup of a Jacksonville Circle K.

On Monday, police released surveillance photos of the crime at the Circle K on Piney Green Road. Parents of Michael Duncan II say they recognized their son. They brought him into the police department. That eventually led to the arrest of the other four.

Charged with armed robbery and felony conspiracy are Zavier Everette, 16 of Richlands, Michael Duncan II, 19 of Jacksonville, Stefon Howard, 18 of Jacksonville, and Kristopher Jammer, 18 of Jacksonville. 19-year-old Warren Hoffman of Jacksonville is charged with felony conspiracy and aid and abet armed robbery.

Hoffman's bond was set at $400,000, while Duncan, Everette and Howard's bond was $300,000. Bond for Jammer was set at $100,000.

Duncan was released from jail Tuesday afternoon, while the others are having their first court appearance.

Sheriff Ed Brown says the five are responsible for several armed robberies in Onslow County and that more charges will be brought against the group.

Original Story

Police are hoping you can help them identify three armed robbers who held up a Jacksonville convenience store this past weekend.

The Circle K on Piney Green Road was robbed early Sunday morning. Two of the robbers were armed and pointed their guns at the clerk, demanding money.

Police released six photos Monday from the store's surveillance system. To view pictures, please click the PHOTOS tab the top of the story.

Robber # 1 black male 6'00"-6'03", 180-200 lbs, wearing a black ski mask over his face, a red in color short sleeved T-shirt, with long blue jean shorts, black and white high top tennis shoes, wearing white gloves. This robber was armed.

Robber #2 black male 5'10"-5'11" about 220 lbs, wearing a black short sleeved T-shirt, dark in color shorts with brown Timberland boots, wearing dark rag over his face. This robber was also armed.

Robber # 3 white male 6'00", 160-170 lbs wearing a red in color short sleeved T-Shirt over a white long sleeved T-shirt, with dark jeans and black shoes. He was carrying a black bag with white writing on it and his face was covered with a blue shirt or rag, and was also wearing white gloves.

Police say all three should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on their identity should call Jacksonville police or Crimestoppers.

    This is a military family that turned their son in. He was raised in a good home that was not violent. Children have to find their own way.

    Where were the parents when their son committed what is said to be MULTIPLE robberies? Yeah, they turned him in, but WHY did they turn him in? Moral issues? Well, MY parents ALWAYS knew where I was and who I was hanging out with. IF mom smelled something fishy, she'd throw my brother, or visa versa, in the car and go "FIND" where we were. This has become something of the past, and I'm just about to turn 30!! Yes, my husband and I will always remain "DINKS", society doesn't need to be bringing more people into a world where noone takes responsibility for one's actions and women are ENCOURAGED to LOOSE their intellegance and put the money into fake boobs so they can be on "girls gone wild" (without even getting PAID!!). This has nothing to do with right/wrong, obviously robbing multiple conveinience stores is not good!! Parents just need to step up to the plate, even if they weren't "ready" to have kids. There's ways to prevent that mistake from happening. FIX YOUR PROBLEM!

    I know it was a hard decision but a good one. More parent's need to make their children accountable.

    I say that the son of these parents should be in prison for a really long time and that the parents should get rewarded for that, especially considering how much money their son just costed them. Why can't all parents be like that? If it had of been my parents, they probably would disown me. That is not how I was raised and it probably was not the way those parents raised their son either. I feel for the parents and hope and pray that they will get through this tough time. If I had a kid and I found out that he did this behavior, first I would cry about the fact that my own kid did this, and second, I probably would whoop their butt really bad that they wish they never did this.

    As a charter member of a Toughlove group 20 years ago, the parents did the right thing. We have to teach our kids THEY must be responsible for their actions. Our son knew we wouldn't bail him out so learned not to ask. (except one Christmas when bail was VERY low). He is now sober and actually went back home to clear up any charges against him. The judge almost fell off the bench when he learned he'd done this. Our son knew we loved him but not his lifestyle. Don't ever give up on your son no matter what he does, but don't enable him. You did the right thing!!!!!
