Swansboro Man Charged with Armed Robbery

On 10/09//2012 Carteret County Deputies and Swansboro Police arrested Dennis Young Jackson, 42, of 309 Sea Shore Drive, in Swansboro in connection with an armed robbery that occurred in 2011.

On 11/26/2011 employees of the T & W Oyster Bar Restaurant located at 2383 Hwy 58, Swansboro were robbed by two men at gunpoint wearing ski masks. The men fled the scene with over $2000.00 in cash.

Evidence collected from the crime was submitted to the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Crime Laboratory for examination and analysis. DNA evidence was entered into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database. As a result a hit was reported by the State of Maryland where Jackson is on parole (which was transferred to NC) for armed robbery. Jackson’s criminal record shows he was charged in the State of Maryland for robbery with a dangerous weapon in 1992 and the State of Pennsylvania for robbery in 1993.

Jackson was charged with Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon and was placed in the Carteret County Jail under a $50,000.00 bond. He is scheduled for his first court appearance on 10/10/2012.
