In­ves­ti­ga­tors have ac­cused three peo­ple of hid­ing a North Carolina sus­pect who eluded of­fi­cers for six days and is be­lieved to have kid­napped a 68year-old man.

Au­thor­i­ties told lo­cal me­dia Satur­day that Jen­nifer Hawkins, 40, and Franklin Badgero Jr., 45, were ar­rested Fri­day and are charged with har­bor­ing Phillip Stroupe II in Hawkins’s Barnardsville home Wed­nes­day night. The third sus­pect, Larry Hawkins III, was ar­rested Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The search con­tin­ues for Thomas Bryson of Mills River. Stroupe was driv­ing Bryson’s truck when au­thor­i­ties found him Thurs­day. He’d been on the run since July 22, when he stole a bike at gun­point, au­thor­i­ties say.

A de­ci­sion should come by late Novem­ber.
