NHSO Detectives Make Arrest for Home Invasion

New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Detectives have made two arrests for a home invasion in April.  On April 30, 2012, Detectives responded to 824 Bent Creek Rd. Apt. # 201 in reference to a possible home invasion. Upon contact with the victims, detectives were advised that approximately 5 people entered the residence when the victims opened the door to a female. All of the victims advised that the suspects were wearing bandanas except for the female. The victims stated they were beaten and a gun was put to their heads while the suspects went from room to room taking items from the residence. All the victims advised that they laid on the floor during the entire incident because they were afraid that someone would hurt them if they did not cooperate. A neighbor of the victims noticed the suspects wearing bandanas entering the apartment and called 911.  As deputies arrived on scene, a vehicle was noticed leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed and was followed out of the area. The vehicle was later found a banded and impounded for further processing. The suspects were not located at the time of the incident.  On May 5, 2012 Detectives arrested Owen Hobson Morgan, a 22 year old white male and Kristina Hanne Steenberg, a 21 year old white female for the home invasion.  Morgan and Steenberg have been charged with multiple felonies including kidnapping and assault by pointing a gun. Both are in the New Hanover County Detention Facility with secure bonds. Detectives continue their search for the three other suspects involved.
